Abstract: A small number of studies on measuring circular economy (CE) exist at company level. Also, the availability of adequate indicators for CE leaves a bit to be desired. This study focuses on egg farm and aims at developing indicators for measuring CE for egg production which are validated by industry stakeholders and experts of sustainable development. A precise and adapted analytical framework for measuring CE in the agricultural sector is developed. Its application to egg production sector using the ECOGRAI method of indicator design made it possible the development of a set of practical indicators whose scientific validation by the DELPHI consultation method led to the selection of 11 key variables to control in order to improve circularity in egg production. The developed methodology allowed to identify, test and validate twenty-five (25) practical indicators (PIs) for measuring CE from key variables. Fourteen (14) concrete actions and three decision trees are proposed as a practical tool to help monitoring validated practical indicators. These findings provide tools and important information for future research aiming at establishing a diagnosis or an assessment of egg enterprises in relation to performance of CE.
