How eggs are a natural fit in a sustainable diet

Canadians value sustainability when it comes to their food. In fact, a recent survey conducted by Angus Reid revealed that 88% of Canadians feel it is important that the food they buy is sustainably produced.1 That’s good news because Canadian egg farmers provide a steady supply of fresh, local, high-quality eggs while championing innovative farming practices that support a green future.

To show Canadians how eggs easily fit into a sustainable diet and lifestyle, we partnered with several content creators to share how sustainability starts with Canadian eggs.
