EUWEP is the representative body in the European Union for egg packers, egg traders and egg processors, and poultry and game.  It brings together three European organisations:

  • European Egg Packers and Traders Association (EEPTA),
    representing egg packers and traders.
  • European Egg Processors Association (EEPA),
    representing egg processors.
  • European Poultry and Game Association (EPGA),
    representing poultry and game.

With so much legislation affecting farming, food and trade emanating from the European Council and Parliament, EUWEP enables the EU egg, poultry and game industries to work together, and to speak with one voice on issues of mutual concern.  

EUWEP represents the interests of its members at meetings at the European Commission and Parliament, and at key events such as WTO Ministerial Conferences.  It also commissions studies on problems affecting its members, with the aim of finding solutions.

A General Assembly takes place each year, providing an opportunity for EUWEP's members to come together and discuss matters of mutual interest, and agree on priorities for the year ahead.
