The European Union is the world's second egg producer and a net exporter of eggs and egg products.

Efforts to improve the market organisation for the egg sector were made since the introduction of the CAP (Common Agriculture Policy), and, in order to ensure the development of the sector, new measures to improve the quality of the products, to protect the consumers and to harmonize the entire market were adopted.

As from 1 July 2008, eggs and poultry meat legislation is integrated in the Single CMO [Council Regulation (EC) No 1234/2007 of 22 October 2007 establishing a common organization of agricultural markets and on specific provisions for certain agricultural products]. Under this Regulation the legislation applying to the eggs sector and poultry sector was simplified by repealing Regulations 2771/75 (Common Market Organisation for eggs), and 2777/75 (Common Market Organisation for poultry meat).
