On the Farm
There are more than 1,000 egg farmers and farm families in Canada who produce fresh, local and high-quality eggs for Canadians to enjoy every single day. We are happy to introduce some of the faces behind egg farming in Canada.
From Farm to Table: The Breaking Station
The Breaking Station
You may only think of eggs in the shell, but they are also sold in liquid, frozen and powdered form. At the breaking station, eggs are washed and candled to verify they meet Canadian standards for liquid and dried egg products. An automated machine breaks the egg shell, and in some cases separates the yolks from the whites. The eggs at the breaking station are then pasteurized and used in a variety of food products such as mayonnaise, ice cream, baked goods and noodles.
