30 Or is this the future? 30

31 Future for eggs - Cheapest animal protein source - Very efficient feed-conversion rate - Industry s early move to alternative systems and low CO2 footprint to become a competitive advantage - Product and market development needs to speed up -Egg products industry will benefit from globalisation of market -CSR will become a KSF 31

32 Conclusions Great long-term egg demand potential for global industry with growing emphasis on yield throughout the value chain Dealing with volatility in feed ingredients and exchange rates will be a key challenge for the industry in the coming years Waves of protectionism and diseases put impact markets and industries Growing importance of consumer concerns in industry; industry should participate in global discussions and come with innovative ideas Consolidation in the global egg industry is going to continue; more internationalisation in the egg-processing industry driven by US and EU companies Global animal protein ndustry landscape will change significantly in the next 20 years Companies from emerging markets (e.g., China, India, Latin America) will play a more leading role 32
