HPAI continues to affect poultry, egg exports

Even though the U.S. avian influenza experience ended with the last detection on June 17, the impact on exports lingered. U.S. poultry exports fell by 11.9 percent to 2,101,065 metric tons during the first seven months of 2015, while their value declined by 18.2 percent to $2.546 billion, compared to the same period last year, according to trade data released recently by the Foreign Agricultural Service.

Meanwhile, exports of U.S. table eggs and egg products for the period also dropped significantly. Measured in shell egg equivalent units, total egg export quantity dipped by 15.1 percent to 159.84 million dozen, and value was down by 2.8 percent to $184.63 million.

Post-grad training concludes in Mexico

The last part of a post-graduate-level training program targeting Mexican poultry and meat processing plants was held earlier this month at a state-of-the-art facility in Frisco, Texas. USAPEEC’s Mexico office and the Mexican Association of Federal Inspected Establishments (ANTETIF) coordinated the program, funded by the Indiana Soybean Alliance, which trains plant operations staff on basic meat science and processing, with the ultimate goal of expanding the use of poultry meat as an affordable raw material by domestic meat processing companies.

US Dried Egg Contest Completed in Japan

USAPEEC recently completed judging for its U.S. dried egg bakery and confectionary culinary contest in Japan. Funded by the American Egg Board, the event attracted 60 recipes over a two-month period. The finalists were narrowed down to six entrants in July, and their submissions were judged on taste, presentation, creativity, uniqueness
and usage of U.S. dried eggs. Judges included Rachel Nelson of the U.S. Agricultural Trade Office in Tokyo, Mr. Yoshida, editor of Café Sweet, Chef Nagai, owner of Noliette, Chef Ihara, owner of ZOPT, and USAPEEC’s own Izumi Amano.

What's New

USAPEEC does not buy or sell poultry or eggs. However, it does facilitate the process between buyers and sellers, in order to accomplish its stated mission of helping to increase exports of U.S. poultry and egg products in the international marketplace. This section is devoted to helping buyers find sellers of specific products. Here, the buyer can request product information and learn more about available products through poultry and egg buyers guides.
