“Canadians are looking to make informed decisions when it comes to purchasing their food,” says Roger Pelissero, second-generation egg farmer and Chair of Egg Farmers of Canada. “While we can’t give every Canadian a tour inside our farms, we can demonstrate our commitment to producing eggs that meet the highest standards of food safety and animal welfare through the EQA® program.”
Since the launch of the EQA® certification program, more and more retailers are opting to leverage this important tool to highlight their local, made-in-Canada eggs. The easy-to-identify EQA® mark allows retailers to maintain consumer trust and showcase the industry’s collective commitment to delivering a high-quality product, produced by Canadian farmers.
