Global Organic Eggs Market: Overview
The global organic eggs market is poised for steadfast growth on the back of several favorable factors. As more people unearth the health and environmental benefits of organic food, commercial poultry and egg production has fall out of favor due to the heavy use of hormones, drugs, antibiotics, and practices of factory farming.
Eggs are qualified as organic if the poultry is fed organic feed, i.e., feed free of synthetic fertilizers, animal by-products, pesticides or other chemical additives. Organic egg production also requires genetically modified foods not to be fed to poultry. Organic eggs must come from poultry that are given antibiotics if only they have an infection.
In addition, organic egg production means that the laying chicken must have access to outdoors and cannot be raised in cages. Flock can have natural molting, induced molting is not allowed.
