Chicken Farmers of Canada pulls supply back by 12.6%

Chicken Farmers of Canada’s board of directors has adjusted the May to July chicken allocation by 12.6 per cent nationally, to reduce production in an effort to address lower demand for chicken from restaurants and food service providers as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The decrease in production will be highest in Ontario, Quebec, and the Atlantic provinces, which produce more chicken for the food service sector. These provinces will see a 15 per cent decrease from the original May to July allocation set back in February. B.C, Alberta, Saskatchewan, and Manitoba will see a 7.5 per cent reduction.

The Chicken Farmers of Canada says that the industry has kept pace with retail demands at this time, and all chickens destined for market have been processed to date. The organization is continuing to work with its supply chain and the government to manage for any major processing disruptions in an effort to ensure that there will be processing capacity for all chickens destined for market.

CFC’s board will be meeting again on April 21 to consider the allocation for the July-August time period.
