Egg Farmers of Alberta (EFA) will celebrate its 50th anniversary in 2018, marking a major milestone for the not-for-profit organization, which was incorporated in 1968. Representing more than 170 registered egg farmers in the province, the group has a simple mission – cultivate a sustainable egg industry together with farmers, consumers and other stakeholders.
With over half a billion eggs produced in Alberta each year, the group works to educate consumers about the nutritional benefits of eggs and debunk some of the myths around food production. Likewise, they work with producers as well to help set industry standards and practices with innovative initiatives like the Start Clean, Stay Clean Program and their On-Farm Food Safety Program, among other programs aimed at continuous improvement.
Focusing on the Four Pillars – Healthy Birds, Healthy Eggs, Healthy Farms, Healthy Communities, the farmer-supported group has spent a half-century working across the province to bring Albertan’s safe, nutritious eggs.
EFA has just released a video to mark their 50th anniversary, check it out below!
