The European Egg Processors Association is a nonprofit organization founded in 1995 with the aim of bringing together all of the European Union’s egg processors. Currently, the Bruges, Belgium-based association has more than 50 members spread across the European Union.
The EEPA offers full and affiliate membership for non-processing companies, and its membership now represents more than 80% of egg products produced in the EU.
The EEPA produces newsletters and keeps its members abreast of information important to the sector, including legislative changes, market data, refunds and measures taken to alleviate food crises.
The association organizes two meetings annually in Brussels and also holds a general assembly together with EUWEP – the representative body for the European Egg Packers and Traders Association and the European Poultry and Game Association.
Two technical committees have been established by the EEPA, and recent work has included publication of a guide to good manufacturing practice, recognized this year by the EU’s Directorate General for Health and Consumers.
UK-based Clive Frampton is the association’s current president, while Dirk Goede of the Netherlands and Luca Monaldi of Italy have been elected as vice presidents as of June 2011. Filiep Van Bosstraeten is permanent secretary.
