This holiday season, take side dishes and appetizers from bored to board with egg-inspired snack boards, perfect for sharing!
Canada’s more than 1,200 egg farmers and farm families are hard at work producing sustainable, high-quality eggs. Thanks to Canada’s innovative system of supply management, Canadians can count on a consistent supply of fresh, local eggs produced to rigorous standards all year round.
