On Farm Food Safety

Turkey farmers across Canada and within Alberta have access to, and are implementing, the Turkey Farmers of Canada On-Farm Food Safety Program© (OFFSP), which details specific steps to reduce and control potential food-safety hazards on-farm.  The program outlines extensive biosecurity measures, including restricting access of people and animals into barns, disinfecting equipment and taking proper barn management and hygiene precautions; all aimed at keeping birds healthy.

The program has passed technical review by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA), demonstrating that it is based on sound science and meets all Canadian regulatory requirements.

By implementing this program, Canadian turkey farmers are doing everything they can to raise turkeys of the highest quality.
