Chicken Farmers of Ontario

The Chicken Farmers of Ontario is a farmer-run, non-profit organization representing Ontario chicken farmers. Ontario is the largest producer, processor and consumer of chicken in Canada. Approximately 1100 of Canada’s 2800 chicken farmers live in Ontario. We grow more than 200 million chickens every year, producing more than 325 million kilograms of chicken meat annually which is valued at over half a billion dollars before it leaves the farm. CFO has been in existence since 1965 and operates under a marketing system known as “supply management” or “orderly marketing”. CFO is accountable to the Ontario Farm Products Marketing Commission (OFPMC), which is a supervisory body that is part of the Ontario Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs. The OFPMC has delegated certain authority to CFO to control and regulate the production.
