Chicken Famers of Ontario garners subsidy

The Chicken Farmers of Ontario is receiving a subsidy of up to $103,812 from the federal and provincial governments to extend it digital platform launched in 2015.

CFO Connects will invest in its farm audit process and improve reporting which it said will lead to “even greater efficiency and productivity in sector regulation and increased ability for the chicken supply chain to respond to the risk of avian diseases.”

CFO chairman Ed Benjamins said “modernizing our business transactions and auditing functions through digitization is one way that CFO is supporting farmers in doing what they do best, feeding Ontarians with safe, healthy, locally-grown chicken.” 

There ought to be a ban on taxpayer-funded subsidies for supply management sectors. They get more than enough via supply management.
