National allocations for A-172 set at +6.5%

BURLINGTON, ON – June 23, 2021 – National allocation for A-172 was set at +6.5% above the adjusted base at the Chicken Farmers of Canada (CFC) meeting on June 23, 2021.

Canada continues to see improvements in the COVID-19 situation with new cases significantly declining and the vaccination rollout speeding up from coast to coast.  The general sentiment is that by late summer, most Canadians will have received at least one vaccination dose and that some degree of new normalcy will have returned. 
 
Planning for the A-172 period reflects an expectation of further lifting of restrictions that will increase social and family gatherings and out-of-home dining activity.
 
In making its recommendation to CFC, CFO engaged in extensive consultations with our value chain to understand market needs. CFO also analyzed market conditions using available market data 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 are:
 
  Ontario Canada Ontario Growth* Canada Growth*
A-172 70,460,969 203,101,000 +6.98% +6.50%
* Relative to the adjusted base for the period.
 
Ontario anticipates volume allocations for A-173 will be set at the August 9, 2021 CFC Board meeting.
