Partnership with Egg Farmers of Canada Brings EQA Certification

OTTAWA, November 19, 2019 – Egg Farmers of Canada is proud to announce a partnership with Denny’s Restaurants Canada, who now feature the Egg Quality Assurance™ (EQA™) certification mark on their menus in restaurants across the country. These efforts demonstrate Denny’s commitment to sourcing quality, safe products and a strong connection to Canadian farmers.

“The EQA program is the culmination of decades of work building world-class standards in the Canadian egg industry. Those standards are upheld through our national programs that include inspections and third-party audits,” said Roger Pelissero, third generation egg farmer and Chair of Egg Farmers of Canada. “We know Canadians want to know where their food comes from, and we are proud to partner with Denny’s Restaurants to strengthen the connection between our farms and their restaurants.”

“Denny’s is committed to providing great food and good value without sacrificing quality or flavour,” said Deborah Gagnon, President and COO of Dencan Restaurants, which owns and operates Denny’s Restaurants across Canada. “We are proud to work with our suppliers and organizations like Egg Farmers of Canada, who uphold leading food safety and animal welfare standards. This partnership is another example of Denny’s ongoing commitment to serve high-quality, sustainably-sourced food to our guests.”

Starting this fall, all 74 Denny’s restaurants in communities across Canada will proudly display the EQA™ certification mark on their menus. All EQA™ certified eggs have met the highest standards of Egg Farmers of Canada’s national Start Clean-Stay Clean® and Animal Care Programs. These standards matter and the EQA™ certification mark provides Canadian consumers with a visual way to recognize made-in-Canada eggs.
