Proudly certified as a Women’s Business EnterprisePresident's Blog
I am proud to announce that we are now certified as a Women’s Business Enterprise (WBE). Canadian businesses that are at least 51 per cent owned and managed by women are eligible to be WBE Canada certified. Burnbrae is owned by the 4th generation of the Hudson family, including myself, my three sisters Helen Anne, Mary Jean and Sue as well as my brother Ted and brother-in-law Ian McFall. We are proud to lead the company with very strong support from our senior leaders and many valued colleagues.
“We are honoured to be accredited by WBE. Generations of the Hudson family have been inspired by influential matriarchal women who were well educated, community minded, and strong role models. We are proud to carry on their legacy.” says Margaret Hudson.
As a family and as a business we have always recognized and appreciated the hard work and dedication of our co-founders, Joe and Grant Hudson, the brothers who started raising layer hens almost 80 years ago. We also all recognize and celebrate that generations of our family have been inspired by influential matriarchal women who were well educated, community-minded and strong role models. For more than 130 years family values have been an integral part of our strong agricultural purpose and heritage. We are proud to carry on their legacy.

The Importance of Protein for an Aging Population
Protein is a vital nutrient that’s important for all age groups because it’s required by every cell in the human body. Since protein needs tend to increase as we get older, researchers are now paying special attention to the protein needs of the people over age 65. This is especially true for older adults who may be dealing with acute or chronic illnesses which causes excessive wear and tear on the body. While dealing with an illness, aging bodies process protein less efficiently and need more of it to maintain bone health, muscle mass and strength.
