Founded in 1994 as the Broiler and Egg Association of Minnesota (BEAM), our mission is “To unite, represent and promote the broiler and egg industries in Minnesota.” (Prior to 1994, we were known as the Minnesota Poultry Industries Association, or MPIA for short. Now we’re known as the Chicken and Egg Association of Minnesota!)
That mission is led by Minnesota farmers, who raise approximately 47 million chickens annually. Our farmers also care for approximately 10.4 million egg-laying hens, which produce about 2.9 billion eggs each year.
Minnesota’s chicken and egg farmers are committed to producing safe, healthy, high-quality and affordable products that are enjoyed by Minnesota families and families across the country.
