Maple Leaf's hog demand remains steady
Hog deliveries to Maple Leaf Foods' pork processing
facility at Brandon, Manitoba appear unaffected by the recent listeria outbreak
and consequential meat recalls.
"There has been no drop-off in demand for hogs from Maple Leaf's Brandon
facility and producers have not slowed deliveries because of the listeria
situation," said Perry Mohr, CEO for Manitoba Pork Marketing.
Maple Leaf has so many brand names, there has been little drop-off in consumer
demand for pork products from the company," he said. "As long as demand from the
plant remains constant, deliveries of hogs will also be maintained."
Producers, at least in Manitoba, obviously remain concerned about the
listeria outbreak, which prompted recalls of over 200 meat products across
Canada, but remain committed to meeting contractual obligations with Maple Leaf,
