OBHECC appeal to continue

The appeal chicken processors have filed against hatching egg producers is scheduled to resume for five days from March 14 to 18.

The Association of Ontario Chicken Processors is arguing that the Ontario Broiler Hatching Egg and Chick Commission has inflated its cost of production used to price eggs and chicks, mainly through the labour and capital costs components.

The decision the Ontario Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs makes will impact not only the hatching egg producers, but also members of the chicken marketing board where a similar cost-of-production formula is used and consumers through the costs they will face for chicken.
