Belwood appeal adjourned

The appeal Belwood Poultry Ltd. filed against the Turkey Farmers of Ontario marketing board has been adjourned.

It was scheduled for July 18 at the offices of the Ontario Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs Appeals Tribunal in Guelph.

No reason for the adjournment is given on the tribunal’s website, but it does indicate the adjournment is TBD, presumably meaning a date to be determined.

There is also no indication about the nature of the appeal.

Belwood Poultry is owned by the Schlegel family which is Canada’s largest turkey producer, holding about 10 per cent of the national market share.
