5 October 2012, at 8:57am

CANADA - Aviagen, Inc., the inaugural sponsor in the Canadian Poultry Research Council’s (CPRC) new Research Programme, has announced that it presented the CPRC with a C$25,000 sponsorship at a banquet at the Poultry Research Centre at the University of Alberta on September 13th.

Scott Gillingham, Canadian Regional Business Consultant for Aviagen, presented the CPRC with the first in a series of three annual sponsorships.

The CPRC is an industry-led organisation with a mandate to support poultry research in Canada through funding, communication of research results, and research-related activities, such as coordinating conferences and meetings on industry research priorities. Sponsor contributions will be used to enhance member organisation annual funding to support the increasing demand for industry research funds.

A recent review of CPRC-funded research projects showed that all parts of the poultry value chain benefit from the discoveries, including producers, feed suppliers, animal health care companies and professionals, processors, distributors and consumers.

“The research the CPRC conducts plays a critical role in the overall success of the poultry industry in Canada,” said Gillingham. “Aviagen is proud to support the CPRC’s new research programme and we look forward to continued collaboration in the future.”
