The European Commission recently proposed to revise the existing marketing standards applicable to a number of agri-food products, including poultry and eggs. The proposed revisions should help consumers make more informed choices for a healthier diet and contribute to prevent food waste.

Solar panels may now be used in outdoor areas used in free-range production systems for eggs. The Commission believes this will stimulate greater supply of energy from renewable sources. The marking of eggs would also be done directly at the farm in order to improve traceability.
