The farm fresh eggs are inspected and graded by a federally licensed station according to the federal Safe Food for Canadians Regulations under the Safe Food for Canadians Act.
There is also a grading requirement under the Food Premises Regulation (Ontario Regulation 493/17) under the Health Protection and Promotion Act, administered by local health authorities.
Egg grading has been an established practice in Canada since the 1940s. The purpose of egg grading is to maximize the quality and safety of chicken eggs sold to consumers.
At the grading station, eggs are washed and go through the candling process, where a light makes visible interior defects and cracks in the shell that may not otherwise be seen with the naked eye. Eggs that are cracked, dirty, or leaking have a higher risk of Salmonella contamination and are prevented from entering the table egg market.
Farm Fresh Eggs are included as part of the Veggie Box rotation during the summer.
