practice allow them, and those in related sectors, to
offer defined quality and gain consumer trust - an
essential component for sustainability.  
While the nutritional value of eggs is well recognized, it is still important to invest in research and bring
new innovative data to medical doctors, nutritionists,
key opinion leaders and consumers. One of the best
programs currently in place is the national research
program managed by the Egg Nutrition Center with the
American Egg Board. Working with top scientists, the
center is able to regularly offer new data demonstrating
new health benefits of egg consumption. 
Younger consumers are particularly interested in
food's impact on the environment and a number of
producers' organizations, for instance The Australian
Egg Corporation Limited, have commissioned environmental assessments. These studies confirm the sector's
low greenhouse gas emissions and offer suggestions on
how to further mitigate egg production's environmental
impact, another key component for sustainability.
Producers' organizations also play a key role in interacting with governments, providing feedback during the
design of local and international standards.  Numerous
associations recently provided comment to the World
Organisation for Animal Health (OIE) on the draft
chapter addressing animal welfare and laying hen production systems, voicing their concerns and providing input
to improve these standards. Similarly, national food-based
dietary guidelines in a number of countries do not contain
recommendations on egg consumption and producers'
associations are working with health professionals to
encourage governments to update these guidelines. 
In many countries, particularly in Africa and Asia,
egg farmers would benefit from pooling resources
to maximize their actions to ensure the sustainable growth of egg production and consumption.
Producers' organizations are key to the sustainable
growth of the egg sector. ■
