There are presently 8 egg farmers on PEI.
We produced 3,304,300 dozen eggs in 2012.
About 50% of the eggs produced on the Island are consumed by Islanders. The remainder of the eggs are consumed in food product distributed across Canada.
Part of our mandate is to coordinate the marketing of our product locally with programs that are intiated locally and through The Egg Farmers of Canada. This involves reaching out to,consumers through:
The Egg Farmers of Prince Edward Island are committed to bringing you fresh, locally produced eggs every day. Through our on-farm food safety and animal care programs we provide eggs of the highest quality that are washed at local government inspected grading stations before being shipped in clean, new cartons to Island grocery stores.
Our registered PEI egg farmers live and work on their farms with their families. Three quarters of our farmers have taken over the family farm from their parents and grandparents.
All registered PEI egg farmers follow:
All of our eggs are graded, sized and packaged in clean cartons at Island grading stations and arrive at grocery stores just four to seven days after being laid. Grading stations are licensed and inspected by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency.
PEI egg farmers are dedicated to taking care of their flocks and providing their Island neighbours with top quality eggs. Choose Canada Grade “A” eggs – a sign of goodness.
