Chicken farmers begin National Chicken Month
The Ottawa-based Chicken Farmers of Canada have begun a promotion called the first annual "National Chicken Month." The national initiative will run through September and will promote chicken as a source of lean protein and healthy fats. It will also promote the farmers who produce chicken. The month will include a series of contest promotions and special activities, as well as online materials as <http://www.chickenfarmers.ca>.
"Celebrating 'National Chicken Month' is just one way to celebrate the great chicken that we have been providing to Canadians for decades," said Dave Janzen, chair of Chicken Farmers of Canada. "Canadians care deeply about their food, about knowing where it comes from and that what they're serving to their family and friends is of the highest quality. Our farmers and their families are no different."
