13:22 EST 11th December 2018 | BioPortfolio

The company, Canadian Inovatech Inc., based in Abbotsford, British Columbia, was the successor to a combination of family businesses founded in the late 1950's that operated primarily in the Canadian egg processing business. It evolved into an international company employing the latest in technology, research and development to produce and market food, nutritional and nutraceutical ingredients and finished products. Recognized globally as a leader in high technology egg-based products that provided 'value-added' application solutions, Canadian Inovatech experienced continued growth through the introduction of Centromay for use in mayonnaise production and Centrova, a concentrated egg product for general baking applications.
In August 2002, Michael Foods, Inc. with headquarters in Minnetonka, Minnesota, acquired the Egg Products business of Canadian Inovatech Inc. and named the new company 'Inovatech Egg Products' ("IEP"). IEP operates plants in Winnipeg, Manitoba and St. Marys, Ontario and has distribution facilities in Abbotsford, British Columbia and Mississauga, Ontari
