|Good news: partly due to our reports and trailing poultry transports (the previous one very recently to Poland) the NVWA (Netherlands Food and Consumer Product Safety Authority) have tightened the control on transports of poultry, especially the ones of a maximum of 12 hours. These transports are not required to provide the animals with water. Practice shows that in reality the transports frequently take longer than the time legally permitted. The unloading of the chickens from the crates, which takes several hours, causes the animals to be without water much longer than 12 hours and that is forbidden by law. We are delighted that from now on controls will be carried out more frequently and stricter.
