Jefo - Species-specific additives

CANADA - Jefo has a long experience of poultry production without antimicrobial growth promoters.

The American FDA announced at the end of 2013 a selective ban of growth promoting antibiotics used in USA, without approval of a veterinarian for a medical purpose. The transition will be effective at the end of a transition period of three years, with a goal to help maintaining the efficiency of important antibiotics treating human illnesses for the future.

Can we assume all imports of meat to the US will face the same fate? Are you ready for such a challenge?
