Who We Are

OBHECC is an organization which represents the interests of broiler breeder growers, broiler hatching egg producers and broiler hatcheries involved in the supply of day-old chicks to the chicken meat production industry. OBHECC was formed in 1983 under the authorization of the Ontario Farms Products Marketing Act. OBHECC follows the three pillars of supply management by regulating production levels, setting minimum pricing, and working closely with the national agency (CHEP) to ensure the supply of safe quality chicken products.

Breeder Growers

Breeder Growers raise day old chicks from the primary breeder until they are mature enough to start laying hatching eggs. At about 20 weeks of age, they are moved from the Breeder Grower facility to the Hatching Egg Facility. All facilities are inspected by OBHECC inspectors and adhere to strict Food Safety, Bio-Security and Animal Welfare guidelines.

Hatching Egg Producers

Hatching Egg Producers produce quality broiler hatching eggs. The Hatching Egg Producers is contracted to ship all of his eggs to a specific hatchery. All facilities are inspected by OBHECC inspectors and adhere to strict Food Safety, Bio-Security and Animal Welfare guidelines.

Hatcheries

Hatcheries produce quality chicks from fertilized broiler hatching eggs that they receive from the Hatching Egg Producers. All facilities are inspected by OBHECC inspectors and adhere to strict Food Safety, Bio-Security and Animal Welfare guidelines. Additionally there is strict oversight by CFIA who regularly inspect all facilities.
