Canadian Poultry and Egg Processors Council

 

CPEPC is the industry association representing processors, packagers and distributors of chicken and turkey meat, graders and further processors of eggs, and hatcheries in Canada.

Representing some of the largest agri-food corporations in Canada, our national industry funded association has the membership of companies that process and market over 90% of Canada's chicken, turkey, eggs and hatching eggs.

CPEPC's mission is to foster a climate of continuous improvement within the Canadian feather industry recognizing the need for increasing competitiveness.

Goals:

  • Proactively address the common goal of business sustainability and prosperity in a mutually respectful partnership with other industry stakeholders.

  • Proactively address issues constraining competitiveness, sustainability and profitable growth to achieve significant and measurable improvements.

  • Ensure that government policies are consistent with fostering a sustainable and competitive Canadian feather industry

  • Relationships with Producer Agencies: manage and improve the ongoing relationship with the National Feather Agencies so that CPEPC and its members have an equitable role in the system along with producers which will ensure an operating environment that allows for a reasonable level of profitability to our respective sectors.

  • CPEPC Resources: boost the role of the CPEPC as a source of expertise and influence through the optimizing use of staff and building lobbying capacity.

  • Food Safety, Animal Health and Animal Welfare: ensure a high state of readiness to develop contingency responses for current and emerging food safety, animal health and animal welfare incidents by proactively working with regulators, producer agencies, customers and consumers.

Canadian poultry processors uphold very high levels of animal welfare and will continue to do so because it is a critical priority for the industry and because we care.

Poultry is King of Proteins in IPC Outlook

 

Poultry is positioned to become the world’s most consumed meat protein in 2019 as African swine fever spreads in pig herds across China.

As the International Poultry Council (IPC) took stock of the global protein outlook at its first semester meeting in New Orleans, La. last week, one economic reality riveted attention: Total world production of pork will decline in 2019 with poultry in position to wrest the crown from pork as the world’s most consumed meat protein.

The upheaval in meat proteins is being driven by African swine fever (ASF) in pig herds in three continents and 15 countries. Production losses in 2019 are expected to amount to 14 percent of the world’s pork supply but may continue to move higher.

“Hog losses in China due to ASF will trigger big shocks in global protein markets,” Christine McCracken, senior protein analyst at Rabobank, told IPC members, “and poultry is the meat protein with the most to win.”
