Fresh Ideas, Growing Together

To our farmer-members: 2020 Reflections, 2021 Opportunities and Future Plans

BURLINGTON, ON – March 29, 2021 – On March 25, 2021, Chicken Farmers of Ontario (CFO) hosted our Virtual Annual General Meeting (AGM) – the virtual platform being one of the ways we continue to work differently during the COVID-19 pandemic.

With over 300 of our farmer-members, allied industry and government partners participating in the virtual meeting, the AGM was an excellent way to learn about and discuss opportunities, issues, and future plans for the Ontario chicken industry.

The meeting themes, Responsible, Resilient, Recover, and Deliver and Transform, demonstrate how CFO is working with farmers and industry to continue to understand and manage COVID-19’s challenges and impacts and how the resiliency of our supply management business model continues to prove effective and successful.

We thank all farmer-members that were able to attend the AGM. While we understand that not everyone was able to make it, we would like to share with you the following highlights from the meeting:
