Canada Celebrates First Ever National Chicken Month

1 September 2016, at 12:00am

CANADA - This September marks the first annual National Chicken Month in Canada, organised by the Chicken Farmers of Canada.

All month long, Canadians from coast to coast will be celebrating their favourite protein – and the hard-working Canadian chicken farm families that raise it.

Chicken Farmers of Canada are emphasising the quality and safety of their chicken, as well as highlighting the benefits they see from their supply management system, which limits imports and ensures farmers are paid above the cost of production.

“Celebrating National Chicken Month is just one way to celebrate the great chicken that we have been providing to Canadians for decades,” said Dave Janzen, Chair of Chicken Farmers of Canada.

“Canadians care deeply about their food, about knowing where it comes from and that what they’re serving to their family and friends is of the highest quality; our farmers and their families are no different.”
