MISSISSAUGA, ON, Nov. 15, 2011 /CNW/ - Congratulations to Michael and Gwen Van Gurp of Norwich, Ontario who were selected as the recipients of the 2011 New Entrant Quota Loan Pool (NEQLP) program. Their selection was announced at Egg Farmers of Ontario's (EFO) Annual Councillor's Workshop at the Delta Meadowvale Hotel in Mississauga, Ontario.

"We had to consider the best fit amongst the eligible applicants, across a wide range of variables" said selection committee Chair Laurent Souligny. "It was quite a challenge to select only one individual from such a high caliber group of people."

The selection committee comprised of Laurent Souligny, past EFO Director and former Chair of Egg Farmers of Canada; Darryl Ball, OMAFRA; Craig Bremner, TD Canada Trust; Robert Loree, Ward & Uptigrove and Shannon Kelly, past President of Junior Farmers' Association of Ontario, who came to a decision after reviewing all applications. The Van Gurp's were selected out of a pool of 84 applicants.

"This program was designed to ensure constant renewal of the egg industry and foster the opportunity for individuals to join the Ontario egg industry," said Egg Farmers of Ontario Chair Carolynne Griffith. "We are very pleased with both the results and the level of care the selection committee took in choosing this years' recipient."

The NEQLP program will take place annually.

EFO is the marketing organization for egg and pullet growers in Ontario. They are an independent, self governing organization funded entirely by egg and pullet farmers.
