London poultry plant meeting today’s demand

Chicken is the most consumed and fastest growing protein in Canada. It offers versatility, nutrition, and a lower environmental footprint. Consumer demand for premium value-added poultry products is growing. Our consumers want chicken from birds raised without antibiotics. Many Canadians seek Halal chicken.

The new poultry plant in London will help us expand our product mix and capacity to meet this growing demand.
