Canadian Raised Chicken – Win an iPad #RaisedByCdnFarmer

So you love chicken, yes I’m assuming that because…well who doesn’t? Over the years I’ve become more aware of the quality of the meats we eat and where they come from. These days it really matters to me what we are putting into our bodies and frankly with the chicken that is Canadian Raised I know where it comes from and how it is raised.

How do I know?

When I’m shopping I look for the label which tells me that the chicken is raised in Canada by farmers dedicated to producing unmatched quality chicken that meets the highest nutrient, food safety and animal care standards.

Chicken Farmers of Canada is an association of over 2700 chicken farmers in Canada who are dedicated to raising the high quality chicken we all know and love.  With its 3 pillars (import controls, production planning and producer pricing), the supply management system for chicken continues to evolve to meet the changing demands of the Canadian marketplace while keeping it open to a predictable level of imported chicken as well.

You can read more about Canadian Raised Chicken on the website, understanding the Supply Chain will relieve any concerns you may have.
