Commission shelves organic poultry feed proposals

The British National Farmers Union (NFU) has welcomed the news that the EU is delaying a decision on its controversial plans to introduce stringent changes to feed regulations in organic poultry production from 1 January, and urged producers to carry on as normal. The European Commission is committed to ending the derogation for non-organic poultry feed and implement a 100pc organic diet. It also wants to force producers to grow a large proportion of feed on their own holding or region, amounting to 40pc of feed for monogastric animals and 70pc of herbivore feed ingredients. These changes were due to take effect on 1 January, however, the EU has delayed the introduction to an unspecified ‘later date’.
