Do egg farms get inspected?

Canadian egg farmers participate in a national Animal Care Program and a comprehensive on-farm food safety program called Start-Clean, Stay-Clean™. Developed by Canada’s leading experts, these national programs set important guidelines based on the latest research and information. Inspections are conducted by trained field inspectors and audited against Egg Farmers of Canada’s national programs.

What is a grading station?

After eggs leave the farm, they are transported to a grading station for washing, candling, weighing, and packaging. Grading stations are registered with and inspected by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency.

How is the latest technology being used in poultry houses?

The latest technology available on the poultry market allows for constant monitoring of hen feed consumption, house temperature and many other factors. Monitoring systems are also in place, but producers still heavily rely on daily house checks.

How are eggs transported to the grocery store?

After leaving the farm, the eggs go to the grading station, where they are washed, graded and packed. They are then shipped to different grocery stores in refrigerated trucks. As soon as they arrive in store, the eggs are placed in cold storage or in a refrigerated display case to keep them fresh. Across Canada, eggs go from farm to store in less than a week.

Are there egg farmers in every province?

Canadian eggs are produced by more than 1,000 egg-farming families in every province and in the Northwest Territories. No matter where you buy your eggs, you can rest assured that they were produced in your region.

What’s standards must Canadian egg producers meet?

Poultry producers across Canada must adhere to strict standards to ensure egg freshness and quality. They must also demonstrate that all production is local. There are two programs that egg farmers must comply with: the national Animal Care Program and an on-farm food safety program called Start-Clean, Stay-Clean™. These programs set comprehensive and rigorous standards based on the latest research provided by the nation’s leading experts.

Farms are inspected by qualified inspectors, and farmers are committed to caring for their flock in an exemplary manner in order to maintain egg safety and freshness at all times.
