Summary

Animals must be purchased from NATURLAND certified or equivalent farms. Exceptions are possible. If animals from conventional farms are purchased, they have to pass the conversion period before animal products are marketed with reference to organic production. The purchase of young laying hens of conventional origin can only be admitted for small units with up to 100 laying hens. (NL standards on production, Part B.II.3.Purchased animals)

Difference

The NATURLAND standard is similar to EU Regulation 2092/91(derogations to bring in animals of conventional origin) but restrictions are more detailed regarding the purchasing of young conventional laying hens and by requiring a higher certification level of organic certification (NATURLAND or equivalent), if available.

Justification

To aspire NATURLAND quality throughout the whole production chain.
