EC Allows Part-Organic Pullets in Organic Production

6 January 2012, at 7:57am

EU - The EU Commission has decided to extend the derogation to allow the use of part-organic pullets in organic production.

This derogation allows pullets that adhere to organic feed and veterinary regulation (part organic pullets) to go on to become full organic from 18 weeks of age.

Ruth Mason, Food Chain Advisor for the National Farmers Union (NFU) stated that the derogation has been extended to give the Commission time to develop harmonised organic production rules for young poultry animals, an area where viewpoints on technical requirements have varied widely between parties concerned.
