sure on exports, there is greater concern on the current state
of Europe's poultry meat imports.
AVEC President Paul Lopez notes that, while Europe's
poultry imports are lower than exports by volume with
a positive balance of 569,000 tons, value imports are
EUR214 million (US$229.5 million) higher.
He stressed that the EU must remain a net exporter. Those countries adopting unfair protectionist measures

must be confronted. At the same time, he warned of emerging low-production-cost countries, which represent a threat
to European producers.

Home market issues
AVEC argues that imports of poultry meat not only
represent a threat to Europe's producers, but that current
legislation governing the labeling of imported meat is also
detrimental for the region's consumers.
Since April 2015, rules requiring the place of rearing
and slaughter to be stated on fresh poultry meat labeling have been mandatory. However, this is not the case
for poultry meat used as an ingredient, and a significant
amount of this meat is imported. AVEC argues that failing
to declare the origin of such meat, which may not be produced to European standards, denies consumer choice and
should be addressed.
AVEC is also calling for a better approach to legislation
on welfare. It argues that, until current legislation in Europe
is properly harmonized and applied, there should be no
new legislation. Current rules also need to be simplified to
offer producers more flexibility. The association warns that
additional standards may have an impact on exports, and
would be difficult to impose on imported meat.
AVEC is also calling for Europe to recognize a difference between mechanically deboned and mechanically separated meat. The current situation, it argues, lowers revenue
for producers and creates extra costs through waste. ■
