What www.gasbuddy.com is for retail gasoline prices, this database will be for retail chicken prices.
Our primary interest is for raw, fresh whole chickens (ie. not cooked, not frozen). Please concentrate your data collection efforts on raw, fresh, whole chicken, first and foremost, but we can accept pricing data on all cuts and types of chicken. The reasons we prefer pricing on whole fresh chickens is that raw, fresh, whole chicken is usually the most widely available type of chicken across all of Canada, is one of the lowest cost chicken on $/kg basis, is perishable so it has a higher volatility in pricing, and is more competitively priced (ie. it matters if fresh chicken sells this week, unlike frozen chicken that can be stored for 6 months or more).
To ensure consistency in the data, we need accurate data on the exact description of the chicken that is for sale so we can compare price vs. the various features (eg. is the chicken organic, air chilled, Canadian raised, imported, etc.).
SFPFC will use this data to help lobby the Chicken Mafia and all levels of government to ensure fairness for all; and safe, nutritious, & affordable chicken for Canadian consumers.
