About Maple Lodge Farms

In 1834, the May family arrived in Canada and settled on a farm just outside what is now Brampton, Ontario. Among the few things they brought was a proud tradition of hard work, agricultural wisdom and humble family values. Each subsequent generation farmed that same property and today it is home to the headquarters of what became their thriving commercial chicken processing business. Today, still family-owned, Maple Lodge Farms (MLF) is Canada’s largest chicken processor. Their products include fresh and frozen chicken cuts, as well as chicken wieners and deli meats, which are sold domestically and in more than 30 countries worldwide. MLF is also Canada’s number one supplier of Halal meat to the consumer marketplace.
