Dutch Egg Processors Await Health Certificates Before Exporting to United States

Jun 10, 2015

A recent U.S. Department of Agriculture report provides more information on the steps Dutch egg processors are taking to determine their potential to export egg products to the United States.

As IDFA reported last week, the recent avian flu outbreaks in the United States have caused a shortage of eggs in the food industry, and dairy companies are seeking alternative sources to meet their demands. According to the report, the Dutch egg processors that are eligible to export must first obtain a health certificate.

For more details, read the "Global Agricultural Information Network (GAIN) Report."
