Over five decades of excellence.
Vanderpol’s Eggs has a rich “egg” history dating back well over 50 years. It all began in 1952 when Willem Vanderpol Sr. began selling eggs door to door in greater Vancouver - simple beginnings! His vision was to provide the highest quality products, to serve clients exceptionally well, and always make good things better. Surrounded by a dedicated staff who shared the same vision, this “extended family” was instrumental in making Vanderpol’s Eggs the largest egg processor in Western Canada.
We continue this tradition today. Proud to be a family owned company, we are committed to innovation. Our goal is to provide our customers and industry partners with leading-edge functional egg solutions that meet food industry standards and address the growing consumer demand for nutritious products.
