Quebec's hog farming sector has received approval from the province's ag and food marketing board regulator for its own form of supply management.

According to a release Tuesday from the Federation des producteurs de porcs du Quebec (FPPQ), the Regie des marches agricoles et alimentaires du Quebec (RMAAQ) officially approved the Gestion equilibree de la production (GEP) or "balanced production management" regulation in a decision handed down Friday.

The GEP, according to the hog farmers' federation, "will (make) greater efficiency in the sector possible through better co-ordination between farm production and slaughterhouse operations, in order to avoid situations where surpluses would effectively lower the average market price."

With a new marketing agreement reached with most of the province's pork plants in mid-2009, plus the new GEP regulation, pork producers "now have a management tool and can respond to government and public concerns about pork production," the FPPQ said.
