About Manitoba Chicken Producers

 

Purpose Statement: To advocate for the sustainability of our farmers so that we can continue to provide a healthy, safe, and nutritious supply of chicken to our communities.

Manitoba Chicken Producers is a provincial farmer-run organization whose main responsibility is to ensure that Manitoba farmers produce enough hatching eggs and meat chickens to meet the needs of the marketplace. The system we operate under is commonly known as supply management or orderly marketing. Manitoba Chicken Producers regulates hatching egg and chicken production in Manitoba. Farmers require a quota allotment for hatching eggs and meat chickens. We allocate quota, set production levels, and monitor production on each farm. More information on our industry can be found here.

Our organization is completely funded through levies paid by registered farmers according to the number of eggs and kilograms of chicken marketed. We do not receive any government subsidies, grants, or other taxpayer monies.

Our directions and policies are determined by an eight-member board of directors that meets regularly. The board is made up of chicken farmers elected from each of the six chicken producing districts and two hatching egg farmers elected to represent the hatching egg producers.

The board of directors meets with hatcheries and provincial processors to determine the needs of the marketplace and to set the minimum prices paid to farmers. We do not set wholesale or retail chicken prices.

Another key responsibility is to ensure that the voice of Manitoba hatching egg and chicken farmers is heard at the provincial, national, and international level.

We promote the consumption of Manitoba chicken and act as an information resource for anyone interested in buying or using Manitoba chicken.

We were established in 1968 under the Natural Products Marketing Act of the Provincial Government (now known as the Farm Products Marketing Act). We are members of the national hatching egg agency, Canadian Hatching Egg Producers, and the national chicken farmer organization, Chicken Farmers of Canada.

In accordance with the Federal Government’s Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act (PIPEDA), Manitoba Chicken Producers takes several steps to safeguard the collection, use, and disclosure of farmer information. We do not share farmer information with the public or media. To further understand how we manage our PIPEDA obligations, please review our Privacy Policy.
