National allocations for A-166 set at +1.0%

BURLINGTON, ON – July 31, 2020 – National allocation for A-166 was set at +1.0% above the adjusted base at the Chicken Farmers of Canada (CFC) meeting on July 29, 2020.

The COVID-19 pandemic continues to bring about temporary but significant changes to consumption patterns. The demand for chicken – in terms of quantity, product types, and the channels of consumption - has been dynamic as businesses and consumers continue to adapt to the evolving emergency measures.

Some stability has returned to the marketplace since the emergence and disruption caused by the pandemic. However, the market remains materially different than normal as some segments are now performing well, while some others remain much lower than normal. 

In making its recommendation to CFC, Chicken Farmers of Ontario (CFO) examined current market conditions using available data. CFO also consulted with our industry partners and industry experts and framed its recommendation on a public policy of “balanced best interest” upon weighing the various factors, perspectives and dynamics resulting from the pandemic.
 
The volumes for domestic allocation, in eviscerated kilograms, for Ontario and Canada as calculated by the allocation formula are:
 
            Ontario   Canada Growth
A-166 66,140,381   191,928,062 +1.0%
         
Ontario anticipates volume allocations for A-167 will be set at the September 15, 2020 CFC Board meeting.
