Egg Farmers of Canada manages the supply of eggs by determining the requirements of both the consumer and farmer. All regulated egg farmers operate under the system of supply management. This system ensures that consumers receive fresh, local, high-quality eggs and that farmers get fair returns based on the cost to produce a dozen eggs in Canada. EFC also:
- Proactively develops national standards and programs that support and improve the Canadian egg industry
- Funds research and development for the egg industry in areas such as poultry science, egg production, animal and human nutrition, and environmental technologies and techniques
- Represents the interests of regulated farmers on a wide range of issues to the federal government
- Oversees national marketing campaigns and education programs that promote the health benefits of eggs and cooking with eggs.
