March 15, 2009- Accomplished Edmonton author Judy Schultz unveiled her new book Which came first? The egg, of course!: It's not just history, it's Lilydale! last week.

Schultz is a nationally-recognized and accomplished author and speaker who specializes in food and agriculture. The book tells the story of the Edmonton-based company's rich Canadian
history and its evolution into one of the country's leading poultry

Project editor Peter Collum says the book is a "fascinating account of how one of Edmonton's best-kept corporate secrets grew from the Alberta Poultry Producers Limited, with its initial focus on eggs, into a company with brand recognition across Canada."


In addition to offering copies of the book to local libraries, historical organizations, and potentially making it available for public sales in the future, Liliydale will be providing the book as a gift to employees.
