Australian Eggs wants to become a lobby group


The marketing and research body, Australian Eggs is asking the Department of Agriculture to allow it to broaden activities by undertaking industry representation-activities currently provided by Egg Farmers of Australia.

It says the key benefit of Australian Eggs taking over industry representation would be secure funding for policy development and advocacy through marketing levies on replacement chicks.
It says the organisation’s primary focus will remain research and development. Egg farmers need to say if they think the change is a good idea. An electronic poll of levy-paying egg producers will be conducted in early December to gauge opinions.
