We believe that food safety begins on the farm. That’s why we’re committed to ensuring that all 2,800 chicken farmers in Canada produce quality chicken that meets the food safety standards of our customer.
In this new version, changeshave been designed to harmonize with current regulations, to clarify existing requirements, to provide greater flexibility for washing, disinfection, and downtime, and to reduce duplication. Key changes are highlighted here.
Canadian farmers raise great chicken. From the time the chicks arrive on the farm, until the moment they leave, chickens raised by our farmers receive the best care. This ensures that the chicken on your plate is fresh, delicious, and most importantly, raised right here in Canada!
While Chicken Farmers of Canada supports the responsible use of antimicrobials in both animal and human medicine, we are researching ways to control, monitor and reduce their use on-farm through our antimicrobial use (AMU) strategy.
