Freedom Food

More on Freedom Food stocking density negotiations in Farmers Weekly Interactive.
Currently, Freedom Food egg flocks have a maximum external stocking density of 1000/ha. However, last month, Lion eggs announced that it was doubling its external stocking limit to 2000 birds/ha from 1 January 2009 and called on Freedom Food to follow suit. This is still below the 2500 birds/ha upper limit allowed under the EU marketing regulations.
It's worth reading it all to get a feel for the way Freedom Food standards are developed.
