The main objectives of avec are to promote and defend the interests of the members, to find solutions to common issues, and to create a level playing field with common international rules and standards. The aim is to represent a strong and united European poultry industry by cooperating and keeping close contact to our member organisations and by maintaining and developing strong relations with the European Union, international organisations, and partners.

The president of the organization describes 2007 as a "challenging year for the European poultry industry", citing the continuing consequences of the avian flu outbreak that crept across the borders of a few member states in the earlier months.
