Chicken farms across the country will see strengthened food safety systems after the federal government committed $72,500 to the Chicken Farmers of Canada on Tuesday.

Selkirk-Interlake MP James Bezan made the announcement in Winnipeg on behalf of Agriculture Minister Gerry Ritz during the CFC’s annual summer meeting.

“Helping Canadian farmers continue to produce safe, high-quality food for the marketplace is critical, as our government’s top priority remains the economy,” Bezan said. “This project will help chicken farmers proactively manage food safety risks so they can continue to meet growing market demands.”

The funding will assist the CFC is undergoing an audit of its on-farm food safety system, and ensure that the chicken industry follows top-notch safety procedures and practices.
