Supply management system demonstrates agility amidst evolving pandemic chicken marketplace

BURLINGTON, ON – As governments begin to ease pandemic restrictions, as patios open, and as Canadians are slowly regaining a sense of normalcy – demand for fresh, healthy chicken raised by Canadian farmers is on the rise.
This afternoon, at a Chicken Farmers of Canada (CFC) meeting, a decision was made to reset the national allocation for quota period A-171 at +4.5% above the adjusted base.
Market conditions have changed, and CFC has responded to support the evolving chicken marketplace.

Today’s revised allocation is an increase from the original A-171 allocation, which was initially set at +3.0% above the adjusted base on May 4, 2021 at the CFC meeting.
Throughout the pandemic, Chicken Farmers of Ontario (CFO) has worked closely with the Ontario supply chain to assess the evolving marketplace and to deliver mitigating solutions. 
The CFO Board monitors all situations closely to ensure that the supply management system continues to respond to market changes and to responsibly meet Ontario’s progressing needs.
