International Poultry Council (IPC) and International Egg Commission (IEC) to sign a renewed MoU

The International Egg Commission (IEC) and International Poultry Council (IPC) have signed a renewed Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to strengthen their longstanding relationship and support continued growth in the egg and poultry industries.

This agreement stems from the excellent relationship that has always existed between the two Associations and which has strengthened in recent months, aware that in facing the challenges that will arise in the coming years, unity will be strength.

The poultry meat and egg sectors have many points in common, starting from the sustainability profile, the best of all Animal Sourced Foods, and they share numerous challenges for the future, first of all Avian Influenza.

Teams of our two Associations will immediately work to transform the contents of this agreement into concrete actions for the good of our two sectors.
