Survey on Industry Employment and Economic Contribution


Recently, the International Fresh Produce Association commissioned a research company to conduct a survey of their industry with specific reference to employment and contribution to the U.S. economy.


Data assembled included:-

  • Contribution of the fresh produce industry to the national economy
  • Number of direct and indirect workers with annual trends and projections of post-COVID expansion of employment through defined components of the supply chain
  • State and regional concentration of employment and secondary effects


It is possible that this data on the egg industry is available, but to date, EGG-NEWS is unaware of a comprehensive report.  It would be appropriate for UEP to consider funding a project to quantify employment and economic benefits from egg production.  Data would be useful in lobbying and justifying federal and state grants to educational institutions and other agencies.
