Certifications that Matter
From food safety to sustainability, we care about the things that matter to you and to your customers.
Heightened consumer demand for increased food safety assurances moves down the chain with retailers and service providers asking suppliers to provide verifiable proof that robust food safety control systems have been effectively implemented. These systems must have been properly validated and show evidence of continuous monitoring procedures.1
Both the Safe Quality Food (SQF) and the FSSC Food Safety System Certification programs are fully recognized by the Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI).1,2
EggSolutions / Global Egg Corporation’s Etobicoke (Horner) plant was the first egg processing facility in Canada to receive SQF Level 3 “Excellent-rated” certification from the Safe Quality Food Institute.
The Global Egg Corporation Elmira facility followed suit when it was expanded in 2015.
The EggSolutions Etobicoke (Newbridge) is certified withing the FSSC 22000 Food Safety Certification framework.

Kosher means “acceptable”. The term originates from the Bible and is set out in greater detail in the Talmud and other Jewish legal works.3
Each ingredient used in the production of a certain food product, even if only used in trace amounts, must be kosher. Also, the machinery used in the production of kosher food products must be thoroughly cleaned in a proscribed fashion to ensure that there is no cross contamination for non kosher food items produced on the same machinery.3

The word “Halal” Literally means “permissible”. In translation, it is usually used as “lawful”. The life of the Muslim revolves around the concept of Halal. In reference to food, it is dietary standard, as prescribed in the Quran the Muslim scripture. A Muslim must consume Halal food and drink.4
The certification of Halal food by from credible, reliable and trustworthy organizations gives Muslims the confidence that the products they’re buying are genuinely Halal.4
Halal products manufactured and/or distributed by EggSolutions are certified by the ISNAÆ ISNA Halal Certification Agency, the Islamic Food and Nutrition Council of America or the Islamic Food and Nutrition Council of Canada.
