Canadian chicken farmers unite for food safety

Canadian chicken boards from around the country have signed a landmark agreement committing to the ongoing implementation and maintenance of a national on-farm food safety programme.

The programme "Safe, Safer, Safest", which serves to guide chicken farmers on safe food production practices, has been in place for almost 10 years and is practiced on Canadian chicken farms nationwide. The signing of the agreement reaffirms the provincial chicken boards' commitment to the system, which involves extensive record keeping, on-farm audits and certification services for all Canadian chicken farmers, reports CNW.
The Memorandum of Understanding outlines the division of roles, responsibilities and authorities between the provincial chicken boards and Chicken Farmers of Canada.
