Chicken pricing mediation fails

Mediation has failed to result in a pricing deal between the Chicken Farmers of Ontario marketing board and the Association of Ontario Chicken Processors.

The issue will now go to the Ontario Farm Products Marketing Commission which, the board said, “has previously committed to holding hearings if there was no agreement reached in mediation.”

Former Superior Court Justice Frank Newbould was the mediator.
