Join the movement: celebrate World Egg Day and learn about sustainable egg farming practices.
Today is World Egg Day and Egg Farmers of Canada (EFC) is celebrating sustainable farming practices and the many ways egg farmers are caring for our planet.
In fact, a recent survey by EFC revealed that the vast majority of Canadians (88 per cent) feel it’s important that the food they buy is produced sustainably.
The survey also found that close to 70 per cent of Canadians hope to increase their understanding of sustainable egg farming practices.
To mark World Egg Day, the organization has created Earthwise Egg Quest: Canadian Egg Farming Trivia Challenge to share the many ways egg farmers have been farming sustainability for generations.
The trivia challenge shines a spotlight on the dedication of Canada’s more than 1,200 egg farmers who work diligently to provide fresh, local, high-quality eggs, all while farming a more sustainable future and upholding rigorous standards in food safety and animal care.
“Sustainability starts with Canadian eggs and it’s great to see that people across our country are genuinely interested in learning about the important practices farmers draw on to care for the environment,” says Roger Pelissero, chair of Egg Farmers of Canada and third generation egg farmer.
“Canadian egg farmers have a longstanding track-record of supporting sustainable agricultural practices. Whether it’s how we work with our communities or the technology we use to power our barns, sustainability is at the heart of what we do and will continue to guide our actions into the future.”
EFC is encouraging producers to join them in celebrating World Egg Day by downloading your own version of Earthwise Egg Quest: Canadian Egg Farming Trivia Challenge at eggfarmers.ca/worldeggday.
It’s also encouraging farmers to share their favourite trivia facts on social media using the hashtag #WorldEggDay and by tagging @eggsoeufs.
