Foul Play -


Recommended Posts

The New Year brought the operational date of EU legislation governing animal welfare in the poultry industry - bigger cages etc. 99% of British farmers have complied, in advance, at a cost to the industry of £400million. Not so, some of the European competition, who complain thay can't afford the new changes required by EU law, so presumably remain in breach of it? So having made the necessary investment to comply, British eggs are likely to be more expensive than the EU competition. Fortunately, eggs do carry source identification, but not so egg powder, cakes etc. The next in line for EU animal welfare legislation will be pig farmers, which may fly before the EU start prosecuting their farmers for non-compliance. :angry:
