The UK and European feed industries' response to environmental concerns are set out in the AIC Roadmap - Agri-supply roadmap for a sustainable food chain; FEFAC Feed Sustainability Charter 2030; AIC respond to Government's "Due diligence on forest risk commodities' consultation.
The Government are proposing to further relax drivers’ hours and rest periods for the period from 4 October 2021 to 23 January 2022.
Members are encouraged to either send a response to Government or to AIC.
Due to the current uncertainties about developments in the Covid pandemic, and in particular the effects of recent and upcoming changes to government rules, AIC has decided to postpone the next step of the plan to return to on-site auditing for the assurance schemes.
In spite of the pandemic, the UK and Irish feed industry has done an excellent job of keeping livestock fed whilst also dealing with changing requirements and guidance, disruption to supply chains, and staff shortages.
