The pain of this pandemic is being felt by farmers and processors in every province across Canada. Some provinces have been affected more adversely than others.
CFC has been working hard with provinces and the federal government on a myriad of issues including depopulation and compensation.
The CFC Directors adjusted the allocations for both A-163 and A-164 to address the massive decline in the food service industry. It is our hope that for A-165 levels of production will improve as provinces begin to “open up” and people start to go out to eat again.
Through this pandemic Supply Management has proven to work. As a chicken industry we are feeding Canadians while keeping prices stable.
I wish all of you and your families well as we navigate these difficult times.
BCCMB CFC Director and First Vice Chair, Chicken Farmers of Canada
