Feds Fund Poultry Sector Brain Trust

The federal government and Canada’s poultry industry stakeholders will collectively put more than $2.5 million into research on the sector’s priorities.

Abbotsford, B.C. MP Ed Fast announced the federal contribution of $1.8 million Nov. 12 toward a joint research cluster to “address sector priorities and challenges concerning poultry health, food safety and quality and production practices.”

The Canadian Poultry Research Council (CPRC) will manage the funds, which also will include over $759,000 from the council and “other industry partner contributions.”
