Food safety & human nutrition

Food safety is a key issue for both consumers and egg farmers and is critical to maintaining confidence in eggs as a staple food. Work to date has demonstrated that it is possible to minimise risks arising on-farm to a very low level and this work will continue through both research and communications activities.

There remains an even greater potential to assist in managing food safety risks arising in the post-farm egg value chain by continuing to facilitate dialogue between the egg industry, food safety regulators and end-users of eggs and egg products.

The positive health and nutritional benefits of eggs to humans will continue to be characterised and disseminated. By investing in RD&E we intend to reduce food safety issues, increase consumer confidence and consumption and enhance industry credibility.
