New Zealand has one of the most ideal egg farming environments in the world, being free from many of the pests and disease strains that other countries experience. We also lead the world in many areas of farm practice and animal welfare.
The Egg Producers Federation represents all commercial egg farmers across all farming types. The industry is governed by robust standards which ensure Kiwis have access to good quality, affordable eggs produced by healthy hens. Some recent changes have been introduced with the new Code of Welfare (Layer Hens) 2012, leading to a significant advance for hen welfare.
