ABSTRACT
This article reports on the plan of the British Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA) to consult broiler producers on their new roles under a directive from the European Union (EU). According to British Poultry Council (BPC) chief executive officer (CEO) Peter Bradnock, this is the first time in EU welfare legislation in which welfare outputs will be monitored and acted upon. He stressed that producers who comply with the Assured British Chicken Production scheme are already meeting almost all the standards.
