"Enforcement of European Animal Welfare Related Legislation"

slide2

Council Directive 1999/74/EC

  • Three types of rearing systems for laying hens:
  • enriched cages - 750 cm² / hen
  • non enriched cage - 550 cm² / hen ban planned for January 2012
  • non-cage systems - barn and free range
slide3

Council Directive 1999/74/EC – Problems

  • Delay of implementation
  • The escape of the hidden eggs
slide4

Council Directive 1999/74/EC – Delay of implementation

  • Consequences:
  • negative precedent for other AW initiatives
  • illegal trade / unfair competition for complying farmers
  • price disruption
  • confusion among consumers
slide6

30% of the EU production is consumed as processed egg products (powder, liquid and colored). 

  • Hidden eggs not covered by Directive may be found in:
  • pasta
  • sauces / mayo
  • sweets
  • liqueur
  • colored Easter eggs
  • Facts:
  • trash bin for cage eggs unless food producers commit for voluntarily labeling
  • confusion among consumers / missing freedom of choice
slide7

Council Directive 1999/74/EC – Conclusion

It is made and implemented in a way that gives space for confusion and enforcement problems.

It is incomplete.

slide8

Council Directive 1999/74/EC – Solution

  • Extension of the existing labeling system 0,1,2,3 to all products containing processed eggs. Advantages:
  • increases speed of implementation of the ban on conventional cages
  • satisfy the freedom of choice for consumers
  • reduces production in cage systems
  • reduces import from third countries
