BC Egg has launched the 2021 New Producer Program. The program will provide the opportunity for two new producers to receive allocations of up to 3,000 units of layer quota. Participation for the 2021 New Producer Program draw will be restricted to those applicants who are current, active Small Lot Permit Holders from any region in BC excluding the Lower Mainland.
A comprehensive application assessment process has been established to ensure fairness to all applicants. Qualifying applications will be recommended to the Board for entry into a random draw. The full application assessment process is available in the 2021 New Producer Program Policy and Procedures document and Part IV of the British Columbia Egg Marketing Board Consolidated Order.
The program application form can be downloaded here.
