BURLINGTON, ON – April 20, 2020 – The Hon. Ernie Hardeman, Ontario Minister of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs shared the above video with Chicken Farmers of Ontario (CFO), to thank Ontario’s chicken farmers and chicken industry during these uncertain times.

Chicken is the #1 protein choice for Canadian consumers and, while Ontarians have adjusted where and what they eat and how they shop amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, Ontario chicken farmers remain committed to producing safe, healthy, high quality, Ontario-grown chicken.

“I want to give a tremendous thank you to Chicken Farmers of Ontario for keep chicken on our tables during this crisis time,” said Minister Hardeman. “It never ceases to amaze me how the spirit of Ontario shows through when we are dealing with the chicken farmers.”
