Elie Hofer

My name is Elie Hofer, and I just finished my first 3-year term as an EFA Board of Director.
I grew up in the Fort Saskatchewan area, I’ve been married to my wife for 30 years. We
have a lovely family of 5 girls and 2 boys. I was introduced to livestock at a very young
age of 22 as hog manager at Scotford Colony, and I am currently managing our layer operation.
It has really helped me grow in the egg industry which is very strong and stable.

As a Director,  it has been a real honour getting to know how EFA and the industry function.
From the centre, we have a very unique supply-managed commodity that I believe and hope
is going to be around for our future generation to enjoy. We are producing world-class food
that every household can savour any time of the day. EFA is doing a great job of keeping
Directors informed on topics that matter.

I truly believe the future is ours if we keep on doing our part in helping this industry maintain its social license.
