For almost 60 years, Egg Farmers of Ontario (EFO) has worked to supply families across Ontario with safe, nutritious, high-quality eggs.

In 1964, the Ontario Egg and Fowl Producers was established under the Farm Products Marketing Act. We operated under that name until 1998, when the organization was renamed Ontario Egg Producers, and that designation remained until 2006 with a final name change to Egg Farmers of Ontario. It’s a name that we are proud of, as it is a better reflection of the many people behind who we are – farmers, staff members, industry stakeholders and partners.

Over time, our name may have changed, but our commitment to high-quality eggs and world-class standards of food safety and animal care has always remained the same.

Today, we are an organization that represents over 500 egg farmers and pullet growers from across Ontario who account for about 40% of total egg production in Canada. That’s about 200 million dozen eggs each year.

From our family farms, to your family table

Our farmers are proud to supply fresh and nutritious eggs to families across Ontario, and they love to share what they do with consumers like you.
