Oct. 29, 2012, Hay River, NWT – A new egg-grading facility has opened in Hay River, which will allow residents of the Northwest Territories to buy local eggs.

According to CBC News, the lack of such a facility in Hay River meant that all the eggs needed to be shipped to British Columbia, Alberta and Manitoba to be graded and sold. Once in full production, Hay River Poultry Farms will produce 30 million eggs annually in both northern and southern markets.

“I’m really excited about this, I think it’s a positive step forward for the egg industry and is really positive for our community as well,” said Andrew Cassidy, Hay River’s incoming mayor. “We’re going to be able to have made-in-the-Northwest Territories eggs on store shelves in the North before too too long.”
