Humane Societies Hail New Egg-industry Code

March 27, 2017

by John Cotter

The Canadian Federation of Humane Societies says a new code of practice for egg farmers will help reduce the extreme stress suffered by egg-laying hens and give consumers some assurance about the term “cage-free.”

The National Farm Animal Care Council code calls for producers to work toward phasing out the use of small, cramped cages for hens over the next 15 years, and sets new care standards for the birds, the federation says.

BC Lions

We teamed up with the BC Lions to show our support for amateur football!

The BC Lions kicked a total of 39 field goals in 2016 and we matched the number by donating the same number of footballs to support amateur football in the province.

Take a Bite of BC

BC Egg is a proud sponsor of the Take a Bite of BC program! 

We work with BC Agriculture in the Classroom to provide eggs to school teaching kitchens throughout the school year. The program provides an opportunity for Chef Instructors to feature locally grown products while students gain experience working with fresh products and learn about the benefits of eating local.

CIBC Run for the Cure

We showed our support for CIBC Run for the Cure again this year! Our team, the "Eggonators," participated in the run and handed out swag at our booth.

SheWay

BC Egg is proud to make a small contribution to SheWay with weekly donations of fresh eggs. Sheway is a Pregnancy Outreach Program located in the Downtown East Side of Vancouver. The program provides health and social service support to pregnant women and women with infants under eighteen months who are dealing with drug and alcohol issues. 

Abbotsford Food Bank

BC Egg office staff routinely help out at the Abbotsford Food Bank’s distribution center. They help sort and organize food donations and staples into 19 different categories that are based on food type, nutrition, and quantity. The Abbotsford Food Bank helps over 3000 people each month with approximately 40% of those being children.

November 15, 2016

By Peter Clarke

“In a nutshell, it’s about real leadership—there’s a deep commitment within the whole team to corporate and social responsibility.”

“It’s not simply a written policy… it’s a way of working and thinking.”
