Politicians working on a free range standard - at last there should be a legal definition

It looks like that at long last politicians in Australia are listening to the egg industry and consumers that there needs to be a national, legal definition of the term 'free range'.
We have been arguing this point for years because there are so many in the industry who have been cheating customers, and pocketing big profits.
At the next forum of State Ministers for Consumer Affairs later this year, moves will be made to establish specific regulations covering stocking densities etc.  We don't know all the details yet, but we certainly welcome the inititive and we will provide any help we can to get a realistic outcome for genuine producers and their customers.
