No more battery eggs
Belgium’s Federal Animal Welfare Authority has informed the Farmer’s Association that the transition period for switching from battery cages to enriched cages and alternative systems will end the 31st of July.
There will be no extension and surveillance will be increased.
Companies found not in compliance in the past can expect an inspection, and from the 31st eggs found to be from battery hens will be destroyed.
