Egg Farmers of Alberta is a not-for-profit organization that was incorporated in 1968, for the purpose of providing effective promotion, control and regulation of the marketing of eggs in Alberta. EFA represents the province’s more than 170 registered egg farmers, who are dedicated to providing Albertans with a stable supply of fresh, high quality, nutritious, locally produced eggs.
Alberta’s egg industry operates under the provincial Marketing of Agricultural Products Act – Egg Farmers of Alberta Plan Regulation (258/97), Egg Farmers of Alberta Board Authorization Regulation (279/97) and Egg Production and Marketing Regulation (293/97) – which is supervised by the Alberta Agricultural Products Marketing Council, a government agency charged with overseeing all agricultural marketing boards and commissions in Alberta.
