Jul. 22, 2013 – Meat processor Maple Leaf Foods Inc. is apparently planning to sell its Ontario turkey farms and hatchery.

According to Reuters, Maple Leaf said that it will sell a hatchery and six breeder farms that produce eggs and day-old turkeys to Cuddy Farms Limited. Additionally, six commercial farms will be sold to Ernald Enterprises Limited, a Maple Leaf supplier.

Ernald will continue to supply Maple Leaf with live turkeys for its processing facility in Thamesford, but no other details were released.
