International Egg Commission

Now for some news out of Madrid that should be receiving a lot more attention: The International Egg Conference (yes, it's real) has finished up and it seems there are some perilous issues ahead for the poultry industry as the world is looking at a population of 9-billion people soon. With such fast expansion, the IEC in Madrid is doing everything in its power to make sure we can continue having our sunny-side ups whenever we want.

The final day of the IEC’s Madrid conference focussed on egg processing and economics. As the population is predicted to reach nine billion people by 2050, more food must be produced, and as demand is increasing, so too are food prices.

Delegates at the IEC conference discussed food prices over the next decades, and the impact these will have on the global egg and egg products industry. Professor Hans-Wilhelm Windhorst presented a summary of his latest statistical report, studying the globalisation of egg production and egg trade, and the need for sustainable egg production was repeated by speakers throughout the day. Professor Louise Fresco and the European Commission’s Bianca Maria Scalet discussed sustainable intensification and the best techniques available to lower emissions within the egg industry.
