October 28, 2016 – Global Egg Corporation has announced that they have entered into an agreement to purchase the Cargill Etobicoke egg processing facility from U.S. based Cargill, Incorporated. The transaction is expected to be completed later this fall. This is Global Egg’s 2nd plant expansion in as many years.
 
Cargill has owned the Etobicoke facility since 2006.  While the terms of the sale are not being disclosed, it has been confirmed that the majority of the facility’s employees will retain employment with Global Egg.
 
“Global Egg is a well established leader in the Canadian egg further processing industry,” says Aaron Kwinter, president of Global Egg Corporation/EggSolutions.  “Integrating this new facility and the expertise of our new employees into our existing business model will allow us to continue to meet our customers’ demands for the highest quality and most innovative value added egg products.”
 
Global Egg Corporation is Canada’s largest further egg processor, servicing food manufacturing and foodservice sectors nationally.   Canadian owned, Global Egg has been supplying processed egg products since 1972.  Today, Global Egg and it’s foodservice division EggSolutions, have production facilities in Elmira, Ontario and now two facilities in Etobicoke, Ont.  Its Etobicoke plant was the first egg processing facility in Canada to receive SQF Level 3 “Excellent-rated” certification from the Safe Quality Food Institute and the Elmira facility followed suit when it was expanded in 2015.
