UEP delivers programs to help egg farmers provide care to hens, produce high-quality eggs and be leaders in their community.
The UEP Certified Cage-Free Program is managed by United Egg Producers (UEP), a cooperative of U.S. egg farmers working collaboratively to address advocacy issues impacting the industry through active farmer-member leadership, a unified voice and partnership across the agriculture community. UEP’s farmer-members work to provide for the health and well-being of their birds; to produce safe, nutritious, high-quality eggs; and to manage their farms responsibly with best on-farm management practices.
Leadership of and participation in the UEP Certified program by the vast majority of egg producers further demonstrates a broad commitment to the care of egg-laying hens. More than 85 percent of all eggs produced in the U.S. come from farms that voluntarily participate in UEP Certified programs. Formed in 1968, UEP members represent about 90 percent of US egg production.
