Stop new FREE RANGE EGGS standards in AUSTRALIA
Petition Background (Preamble):
This CTM will be known as the Egg Standards Australia/Australasia. One of the proposed standards, which is of particular concern, is the 13 fold increase in stocking densities of free range eggs.
This means that they intend to increase the number of hens per hectare from a maximum of 1500 to a staggering 20,000 and still be allowed to label it as free range.
The AECL will be able to sport their stamp of approval on egg cartons from farms with these new stocking densities and with other minimum housing and management standards.
Please do not approve this application.
