Chicken Farmers of Saskatchewan (CFS) is a farmer run, non-profit organization representing approximately 75 registered chicken growers. Most of the farms in Saskatchewan are family based production units that have been passed down through the generations. CFS has been part of a thriving poultry industry since 1966 and a member of the national agency, Chicken Farmers of Canada, since 1980.
All registered producers follow the mandatory On Farm Food Safety Assurance Program and an Animal Care Program. Realizing the public concern to have a safe and quality food product, producers keep detailed records of all chicken grown on their farms.
Saskatchewan has two major processors, Lilydale Inc. located in Wynyard and Prairie Pride Natural Foods located in Saskatoon. Both processing facilities are HACCP approved.
