Egg Farmers of Canada release video
The Ottawa-based Egg Farmers of Canada has released an online video to coincide with the 25th annual World Egg Day on Oct. 8. The animated video is intended to highlight the work performed by the approximately 1,200 Canadian egg farmers and their roles in their local communities. The promotion also encourages consumers to submit their favourite egg dishes via social media, including contributions from a number of Canadian chefs and culinary influencers.
“Eggs are a staple in kitchens all across the country and, thanks to our dedicated farmers and the system of supply management, we always have a steady supply of fresh, local, high-quality eggs to meet Canadians' needs,” said Roger Pelissero, chair of Egg Farmers of Canada. “Not only that, we recognize the significant contributions egg farmers make to Canadian society and to our nations' food system, which is why this World Egg Day we're celebrating their ongoing commitment and support.”
