Sustaining animal health and food safety in organic farming

Objective

In Europe, organic livestock production has experienced rapid growth in the past decade. Common EU standards for organic animal production were implemented only some 18 months ago (1804/1999). There is a strong need to harmonise the standards under widely different circumstances in order to ensure food safety and animal health. The proposed project will provide a network where consumer and policy maker concern about food safety and animal health is addressed in existing and emerging EU-countries in the field of organic livestock production. Through workshops, standard development, creation of network and fora for researchers and stakeholders, this 3-year project will facilitate, coordinate, integrate, communicate and discuss research in the field with special emphasis of harmonisation between existing and emerging EU-countries.
