November 13, 2017

American Egg Board (AEB) is the promotion (advertising, marketing communications), education and research organization for the U.S. egg industry. The activities of AEB are conducted under the oversight of the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA). The Secretary of Agriculture appoints a Board of Directors, egg producers who provide direction to administer the program on behalf of all egg producers in the 48 contiguous states. The Board was authorized by the Egg Research and Consumer Information Act passed by the 93rd Congress. The purpose of the law is “to enable egg producers to establish, finance and carry out a coordinated program of research, producer and consumer education and promotion to improve, maintain and develop markets for eggs and egg products.”
