Our Story

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

We work with approximately 150 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. We work with industry partners, such as graders and processors, to ensure that the consumer has a choice of eggs that is of the highest quality standard, and is affordable for all household budgets.
