The Chicken Farmers of Ontario (CFO) became Canada's first major player in the agricultural sector to electronically connect its entire supply chain by adapting technology from SAP - a leader in enterprise management software - to create CFO Connects. Thanks to CFO Connects, more than 1,000 farmers, 17 processors, 3 hatcheries and 19 transport companies can now conduct a range of daily business transactions online. The new system also increases traceability across the supply chain, with real-time tracking of medications, vaccinations and flock movements. The result is a stronger, more integrated Ontario chicken industry that delivers enhanced farm and food safety.
