USAPEEC Presents Third Training Program on Egg and Egg Products for Mexico

05/04/2024

With funding provided by the Illinois Soybean Association, USAPEEC has again partnered with the National Autonomous University of Mexico to promote U.S. egg products through education. The program will comprise five modules covering 120 hours of virtual training and one in-person session.  The program will run from mid-April through the end of July.  Twenty-one participants have registered including egg industry professionals and veterinarians involved in food safety.  Programs to promote processing of egg products benefit U.S. producers, given the importance of Mexico as a significant second-ranked but price sensitive importer of U.S. shell eggs most of which are processed in Mexico. Imports are based on national demand over domestic production.

 

In 2023 Mexico imported 15 million dozen shell eggs valued at $17.4 million up 16 percent in volume but down 7 percent in value compared to 2022, with a unit price of $1.16 per dozen. Mexico imported 4,704 metric tons of egg products in 2023 valued at $22.8 million, up 64 percent in volume and 63 percent in value compared to 2022, with a unit value of $4,847 per metric ton.
