The Government’s less restrictive rules become effective on February 1 this year. Only commercial producers with 50 hens or more, who produce and sell more than 20 dozen eggs a week, will be required to be accredited with an audited food safety plan, meaning home egg producers will be exempt from the new national requirements.
Many thanks to Paulette Whitney for the personal time and effort she has put in to achieve this excellent result for all small egg producers in Tasmania. Thanks also to everyone else who made submissions including our own SPKAT Inc Executive.
