The egg products manufacturers in Europe (EU) have a yearly output of more than 1.5 million metric tons egg products, according to Filiep Van Bosstraeten in a report for the International Egg Commission (IEC). Over the last 10 years, most of the bigger producers had further growth and some of the small factories have been taken over or merged in order to set up new and modern facilities.

Because of strict EU regulations and high requirements by the food industry, the egg products industry in the EU became probably the best worldwide. The equipment is constantly improved not only for higher capacities but also for better hygiene and to extend the shelf life of fresh liquid egg products. Most manufacturers are certified according ISO and BRC standards.
