International Egg Person of the Year


Peter Clarke named International Egg Person of the Year

Egg Farmers of Nova Scotia (EFNS) is thrilled to share the news that Peter Clarke, from Southview Farms, has been awarded the Denis Wellstead Award for ‘International Egg Person of the Year’ at the 2019 IEC Global Leadership Conference.

“Peter’s dedication to agriculture runs deep, and his passion for the egg industry is very apparent. Throughout Peter’s farming career, he has been a regular on numerous industry organisation boards showcasing his commitment to the success of the wider industry,” said IEC President, Tim Lambert.

“Peter presided as Chair of Egg Farmers of Canada from 2011 to 2017, where he helped to guide the organisation towards notable achievements, such as launching a Canada-wide on‐farm food safety program. He also helped set a new course for egg farmers in Canada through a national housing transition to phase out conventional production methods as well as created several research chairs within universities, which continue to focus on key issues facing egg producers in Canada.”

“Peter firmly believes in the concept of social license, and that as farmers we owe it to consumers to be transparent about how our foods produced, sharing knowledge of what producers do on-farm, which has contributed significantly to the success of the industry in Canada.”

“He was instrumental in helping to bring egg production to Project Canaan in eSwatini through his work with the International Egg Foundation and is a very worthy recipient of the Denis Wellstead Award.”

On behalf of all egg and pullet farmers in Nova Scotia, congratulations to Peter on receiving this prestigious award and thank you again for all you do for the egg industry.
