In existence since 1948, DPI's members include more than 1,000 farm families raising chickens, five companies producing birds on Delmarva, hundreds of chicken company employees, hundreds of allied industry suppliers of products and services, and Delmarva-based, non-chicken businesses that recognize the important work DPI does to keep the local chicken industry and local economy strong. Most business members make a minimum membership dues payment of $150, with many choosing to contribute more for a bigger impact.

Delmarva's poultry economy is an annual $3.2 billion enterprise, and a wide range of local businesses, national companies, contractors, suppliers of services, and other Delmarva businesses that might not consider themselves as part of the chicken industry are all made more profitable by the continued success of our five chicken companies and the more than 1,700 farm families raising chickens here. The work of Delmarva Poultry Industry, Inc. helps sustain and grow that profitability.

Just imagine if, suddenly, the Delmarva chicken industry ceased to exist -- there would be chaos.

How could your business be linked to the chicken industry?  You might supply equipment to poultry companies that spent a combined $94 million on capital improvements in 2016. Or perhaps many of your customers are chicken growers, who in all received more than $240 million in income for their hard work raising birds. If your customer base includes corn, soybean and wheat farmers, you should know Delmarva's chicken industry spent $997 million last year buying those crops for feed.

DPI works on behalf of the chicken industry by influencing legislation affecting the industry in Delaware, Maryland and Virginia; providing technical guidance and educational opportunities to growers; and, through press and social media outreach, ensuring that the public knows the facts about our industry, its economic impact, and its environmentally sustainable initiatives. All these Delmarva Poultry Industry, Inc. activities and many more help keep our chicken industry strong and doing business with you.

Please consider joining DPI today, to ensure that an industry you count on will continue to thrive.

Membership in DPI is as simple as completing and mailing the application form along with a check, or paying online by credit card. For growers, the suggested minimum dues payments are $75 per chicken house.
