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.
Electric Buying Group
Our 2018 electric buying group will provide an opportunity for savings for chicken growers, allied business members of DPI, and large residential electric buyers served by Delmarva Power. To take part, you must enroll by August 31, 2018.
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.
