BURLINGTON, ON – December 9, 2021
– National allocation for A-175 was set at 2.5% above the adjusted base at the Chicken Farmers of Canada (CFC) meeting on December 9, 2021.
The continuing transition of the Canadian economy towards a new normalcy, with economic activity forecast to continue to operate around pre-pandemic levels, is a leading factor for the A-175 allocation. Planning for the A-175 period reflects a forecast for continuing strong demand for chicken.
In making its recommendation to CFC, CFO consulted with the Ontario industry value chain and also 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:
* Relative to the adjusted base for the period; including a +0.21% growth from the A-163 and A-164 Recovery Process.
** Relative to the adjusted base for the period.
Ontario anticipates volume allocations for A-176 will be set at the February 1, 2022 CFC Board meeting.
