National Allocation for A-181 set at +1.0%

BURLINGTON, ON – November 16, 2022 – National allocation for A-181 (February 12, 2023 – April 8, 2023) was set at +1.0% at the Chicken Farmers of Canada (CFC) meeting on November 16, 2022.

Demand for chicken continues to be strong. This is supported by competing meat prices and overall market conditions. The prospect of additional imports leads to a conservative approach.

In making its recommendation to CFC, CFO consulted with the Ontario industry value chain and examined market conditions using available data to understand consumer demand as well as expected supply - including imports.

CFO continues to frame its allocation recommendation based on a strategic approach of “balanced best interest outcomes” by weighing the various factors and perspectives, and the chicken market influencing dynamics of the pandemic.

The volumes for domestic allocation, in eviscerated kilograms, for Ontario and Canada are:

   Ontario   Canada Ontario Growth* Canada Growth**
A-181 71,341,674      204,586,106       +1.44%        +1.0%
