Now is the time to act – now is the time to work together to make a difference

The International Egg Foundation (IEF) is an independent charitable foundation that has been established to improve nutrition, health and education in developing countries, by increasing egg production and consumption.

The aim of the IEF is to create an independent and sustainable food supply promoting self-sufficiency to improve the lives of expectant mothers, infants, children and families, now and in the future.

We want to provide people living in developing countries with the means and methods to access high quality egg protein, and help boost their natural immunity levels.
