DuBreton is launching a petition to ask for the support of all consumers concerned about animal welfare and organic practices in its request to be excluded from the Plan Conjoint de mise en marché collective des porcs du Québec.

For many years, duBreton has been fighting for the Convention des Producteurs de Porcs du Québec to be adapted to the particularities inherent in the production of specialty hogs, i.e. organic and Humane Certified. Unfortunately, the Convention des Éleveurs de porc du Québec has never been amended to reflect the reality and interests of specialty pork producers and does not allow independent producers like duBreton to develop this type of pork.

In fact, the Syndicat des Éleveurs de porc du Québec collects dues to promote Quebec pork from organic and Certified Humane producers, without ever investing a single dollar in promoting their products. "The Plan Conjoint is supposed to improve marketing conditions by enabling producers to collectively negotiate the conditions under which their product is marketed, but for specialty pork producers, it's quite the opposite. Not only do they not benefit from collective negotiation, but their remuneration is lowered to serve the interests of the majority, i.e. mass-market pork producers," declared company president Vincent Breton.

"Today, we are asking all our partners and all consumers concerned about animal welfare and organic practices to sign this petition to show their support for our request to be excluded from the Plan Conjoint." said Vincent Breton.
