The Eggcelerator Lab is now accepting entries for its 2023-2024 Product Development Competition ​through January 16, 2024

The American Egg Board’s newly established Eggcelerator Lab™ is excited to launch its Student Product Development Competition. This inaugural competition will provide students the opportunity to showcase their knowledge, expertise, and ideas in creating snack food products that include eggs. Students will showcase novel ways to use egg ingredients in products that help meet today’s consumer preferences for new types of snacks. 

Ongoing research continues to confirm that snacking is a huge opportunity to drive growth with new products. As Americans have more access to information about their food sources, healthy living options and new food choices, eggs are an ingredient that has endless nutritional and functional benefits that can transform new products.

Undergraduate and graduate students in the United States are eligible to compete by developing innovative new snack food products incorporating egg as an ingredient. Successful entries will meet specific competition criteria demonstrating innovation and providing value to consumers.
