For the first time in its history in 2017, the American Egg Board (AEB) expanded its mission of “strengthening demand for U.S. eggs and egg products” to the global marketplace.

In conjunction with export partner, USA Poultry & Egg Export Council’s (USAPEEC’s), in-country assets and market analysis expertise, the AEB made egg exports a top priority, proactively putting in place comprehensive programs and significantly increasing support to advance this strategic pillar.

The U.S. market for eggs is highly saturated, with significant competition at breakfast. While there remain growth opportunities in the U.S. (QSRs, food manufacturing, convenience stores and school foodservice), growth will be incremental.

The greatest opportunities for growth are to find new customers and open new markets; those opportunities best exist outside the U.S. 96% of the world’s population lives outside the U.S. From 1990-2015, as a percentage of total production, egg exports averaged 3.42% annually—with a low of 1.5% in 1990 to a high of 5.0% in 2013.
