Pellerin re-appointed head of Farm Products Council

Agriculture Minister Gerry Ritz has appointed Laurent Pellerin to a second three-year term as chairman of the Farm Products Council of Canada.

The council’s main role is supervising national marketing agencies for chickens, turkeys, eggs and hatching eggs.

It also supervises national agencies that gather funds for beef research and promotion and the same for raspberries.

It is due to make a decision soon on an application to establish a national agency for pullet growers.
