Delmarva Poultry Industry, Inc. is the 1,800-member trade association working for the common good of the meat chicken industry in Delaware, the Eastern Shore of Maryland, and Virginia's Eastern Shore.
Our members are dedicated to producing high-quality, wholesome food - while doing what's right for the communities in which we work and live.
DPI provides scholarships of $1,500 and up to
college and graduate students with majors
related to the chicken industry. Applications for
the 2017 scholarship are being accepted now,
and are due April 3.
Vegetative Environmental Buffers
Planting trees around chicken houses has both air quality and
water quality benefits. Properly designed buffers with farm
specific plants, either trees or grasses, help capture air
emissions from chicken houses and absorb nutrients. DPI is
leading the way in helping farmers get grants for buffers and giving
technical assistance in installing them.
We know our way around a kitchen here at
DPI, and over the years, we've collected some
great-tasting recipes that make chicken a focus.
If your business is linked even in part to the
chicken industry, please consider becoming a
member of DPI. We work tirelessly on behalf
of the entire industry. Help us ensure that an
industry you count on will continue to thrive.
