Role

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.

The Egg Farmers of Canada Way

Egg Farmers of Canada  believes  in the  inextricable link between social  license and  business success. We nurture our  acceptance nationally,  and  in the  broader international community—not just because it is the right thing to do but because it bolsters our aspirations of profitability and enhanced socio-economic development.
