Canadian egg producer, Burnbrae Farms, supports SuperWalk


Burnbrae Farms Burnbrae Farms, long time sponsor of Parkinson Canada’s SuperWalk, is an egg farming company that has been supplying Canadians with eggs for more than 70 years. They were one of the first egg farmers in Canada to introduce enriched housing to improve their hens’ well-being and take great pride in supplying eggs from chickens whose well-being is of top priority.  

Burnbrae Farms cares for Canadians’ health and well-being, too. In their 2021 sustainability report, they reported health and well-being as one of their top three organizational goals alongside addressing poverty and contributing to zero hunger in Canada.  

Eggs and brain health 

Eggs can be a great source of nutrition in a balanced diet that supports overall brain health. Protein, vitamin E, vitamin B12, iron and about twenty other essential nutrients are found in eggs. When eggs are enriched with omega-3 fatty acids, they’re delivering additional nutrients that a growing body of research suggests is linked to improved brain health.  

In an article on their website, Burnbrae Farms says: 

“Evidence suggests that omega-3 fatty acids like those found in fish, spinach, flax and hemp seeds, and omega-3 enriched eggs, may have neuroprotective properties. Dietitians advise that you can maintain good health when living with Parkinson’s disease by enjoying a variety of vegetables, fruits, whole grains and proteins from poultry, eggs, meat, nuts, seeds, fish and beans.” 

In the recent past, Parkinson Canada has funded research projects about omega-3 fatty acids and their impact on brain health. 

Why they sponsor 

Burnbrae Farms is working diligently to live out their core values, and collaborating with institutions and organizations across Canada is enabling them to do just that. Parkinson Canada is one of many organizations Burnbrae Farms has connected with to ensure their brand is growing in the direction that matters most to them. 

Being a Parkinson Canada SuperWalk sponsor makes sense for Burnbrae Farms. We’re united in our devotion to promoting overall brain health and both believe in the important role a balanced diet and active lifestyle can have in supporting brain health.  

We thank Burnbrae Farms for their continued support in bringing SuperWalks to Canadians everywhere to raise awareness of Parkinson’s and raise funds to invest in Parkinson’s research. 

Our 2022 SuperWalk events are made possible with help from our sponsors like Burnbrae Farms who has been a proud national sponsor since 2006. There’s still time to find your walk and register to support Canadians impacted by Parkinson’s.
