BC Fresh Eggs

Local. Fresh and delicious.

BC Egg is a non-profit organization that oversees and manages the province’s egg farming industry.

We work with approximately 132 family-owned and operated egg farms to bring the goodness of B.C. fresh eggs to your table. We oversee and manage the production, grading, packing, marketing and transportation of all regulated eggs in B.C.

Matching egg supply with market demand results in stable egg prices for consumers and a structure operating without government subsidy. Together with our industry partners such as graders and processors, we work in tandem to ensure that the consumer has a choice of eggs that is of the highest quality standard, and is affordable for all household budgets.   

Registered BC egg farmers

Our farms are small and this creates a greater connection to the birds that lay the eggs. A more intimate, understandable scale of farming means real people are making responsible decisions about their animals and their welfare; eating fresh B.C. eggs is a tribute to our local producers and farmers. Our eggs are produced in a manner that reflects the spirit of responsibility, accountability, and integrity of all our stakeholders. Our eggs meet or exceed consumer expectations for food safety, quality, health benefits, selection, the treatment and welfare of birds, and protection of the environment.

Our farms operate independently, without government subsidies, and with respect for resources and the products they produce. As a local business, B.C. egg farmers support our commitment and thus we are able to create a stronger, more viable economy for our current and future generations.

Dedication to the highest standards for hen care & farm management

Registered egg farmers in B.C. are dedicated to producing BC Fresh Eggs of consistent high quality, nutrition, and safety. Through responsible farm management, egg farmers ensure the health and well-being of their hens and good stewardship of the surrounding environment by following the Recommended Code of Practice.  These standards were developed, reviewed, and approved by organizations including the Canadian Federation of Humane Societies, the Canadian Veterinary Medical Association, the Canadian Food Inspection Agency, animal scientists, and farmers. Registered egg farmers are inspected and audited annually.
