This World Egg Day, join Egg Farmers of Canada (EFC) and chef Lynn Crawford to celebrate the hardworking heroes and champions in our food sector who help deliver fresh, local, high-quality eggs to Canadians every day.

“Canada’s egg farmers from coast to coast to coast work with many partners to deliver a steady supply of nutritious and versatile eggs to Canadians,” says Roger Pelissero, third generation egg farmer and chair of EFC. “That’s why this World Egg Day, we’re expressing our gratitude to everyone from farm to fork by celebrating their ongoing support and commitment.”

Across Canada, more than 1,100 egg farmers produce the eggs Canadians want and enjoy. You’ll find them in every province and the Northwest Territories delivering local food for their neighbours.

“I’m thankful to everyone working hard to make sure Canadians have access to made-in-Canada food every day,” Crawford says. “I applaud their expertise and commitment, and I am proud to honour their dedication to producing quality ingredients, like eggs, used in kitchens across our country.”

To mark World Egg Day, EFC and Crawford produced a special video to share their appreciation for those helping provide local food items for all Canadians. The video features egg farmers from across Canada expressing their gratitude and shining a light on the many people who have stepped up in incredible ways in recent months.

Supporting local communities has always been important to egg farmers, and like many other Canadians, recent events emphasized the importance of doing what we can to support our friends, neighbours and community members. Canadians are supporting each other, and egg farmers are proud to play their part.
