BFREPA congratulates the Government on their overwhelming landslide victory and look forward to working together on the many issues that affect egg production.
One of which is ensuring that our egg market is protected from cheap, welfare inferior products in the preparations to leave the EU and in negotiations for trade agreements with other countries.
As we welcome in the final year of this decade, for egg producers Salmonella, Avian Influenza and reducing margins, has made 2019 a truly unforgettable forgettable year.
The road to a 2025 cage-free future is starting to unfold as the retailers nail their commitments to a production method.
Sainsbury’s have joined the band of retailers committing to free range, whilst Tesco – working together with the BEIC and CIWF – have agreed a standard which will give barn an identity. The CIWF have told the industry that whilst they have approved a standard it doesn’t mean that they will not campaign against barn in the future, so a barn standard does not give barn a clear run with animal charities.
As a result of this development, free range has its point of difference, but it remains to be seen how that point of difference will play out with the free range market.
The BFREPA Conference and Award Dinner was an overwhelming success with many producers attending both events.
Former pop star-turned-vicar the Reverend Richard Coles a keyboard player in 80s band The Communards and now vicar of Finedon, Northamptonshire, presented the awards and kept delegates amused with his musical anecdotes.
Every individual or business that won an award has earned their accolade for playing their part in driving forward free range egg businesses and consumption. BFREPA is delighted to honour their contributions through the Free Range Awards.
