Huber, Beate (2005) Conversion and labelling, animal products - DE Naturland Standards 2005. [Organic rules - Differences between other regulations/standards and EEC No 2092/91]

Full text not available from this repository.

Summary

Animal products can only be marketed with reference to Naturland if the respective conversion period for the animal species has been complied with AND the farm has been in conversion for at least 12 months. (NL standards on production Part A.I.9. Labelling and marketing)

Difference

The NATURLAND standard requires the farm to undertake at least a 12 month conversion period before marketing NATURLAND organic animal products, regardless of the (shorter) conversion period for certain animal products. According to the EU Regulation 2092/91 these animal products (eggs, milk, pullets, pork, mutton and goat meat) can be marketed as organic after complying with the provisions of the regulation during at least the conversion periods of the animal species, which are identical to the specific periods mentioned by NATURLAND. A minimum conversion period of the farm (land) is not mentioned.

Justification

This is required because of the stipulation to use animal feeding stuffs produced on the same farm in the diet.
