The Australian Egg Corporation Limited (AECL) is an Industry Services Body (ISB) or provider of marketing and Research & Development (R&D) services for the benefit of all stakeholders, principally egg producers. AECL is mainly funded through statutory levies, collected under the Egg Industry Service Provision Act 2002, and Australian government funds for the purposes of 'approved' R&D.
AECL is a public, non-listed company and was registered with the Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC) on 18 November 2002 and commenced operations on 1 February 2003. The Act, the Statutory Funding Agreement (SFA) between AECL and the Australian Government and the company's Constitution provide the framework for all AECL operations. AECL is one of 15 Rural Research and Development Corporations (RDCs).
AECL services all known Australian egg producers irrespective of their size, location or farming system who distribute a wide variety of eggs and egg products to the local and international market.
