The paper is based on the study of various reports and different type of articles regarding the EU egg’s production and egg’s quality. In order to determine the Romanian consumers' perception regarding the quality of the egg, a questionnaire was prepared which was completed during January-February 2019 by 124 people from Sibiu County. Egg purchase preferences show that 42% of people prefer eggs bought from peasants, 29% of people buy from the shop next to the house, while 29% of people buy eggs from the supermarket. The main motivation to consume eggs is for 58% of respondents the rapidity of preparation. More than 50% of people appreciate the eggs as tasty and only 29% see a source of protein of animal origin in egg consumption. Buyers are pretty well informed about the link between the coded egg and the hen's breeding system (54%). Sensory characteristics and nutritional value of foods are the factors on the basis of which consumers appreciate the quality of the eggs.
