Request for an opinion on including poultry meat under the measures to combat deforestation

Question écrite de M. Matteo ADINOLFI - Commission européenne


Subject: Request for an opinion on including poultry meat under the measures to combat deforestation

Minimising the risk of deforestation in connection with products marketed in the EU is an ethical and rational aim being pursued across Europe by, among others, associations representing poultry farmers, who would like to see the current Commission proposal to ban the use of soya produced in deforested areas extended to include a ban on its use in birds reared for poultry meat. Including poultry among the products having to comply with this regulatory proposal would mean that third countries wishing to place poultry meat on the EU market would have to prove the animals had not been fed with soya whose cultivation had contributed to deforestation. Obliging producers to do this would encourage the use of soya not grown on deforested land, while at the same time shielding European farmers from a competitive disadvantage.

In the light of the above, can the Commission state whether, including in terms of the aims of the Green Deal, it sees a need to include poultry among the products governed by the regulatory arrangements and to shield European producers against any competitive disadvantages with third countries?

Answer given by Mr Sinkevičius on behalf of the European Commission (30 August 2022)

The proposal for a regulation on the making available on the Union market as well as export from the Union of certain commodities and products associated with deforestation and forest degradation (1) is a key deliverable of the European Green Deal (2) and represents the most ambitious demand side initiative to curb deforestation and forest degradation ever put forward anywhere in the world.

Six commodities (wood, cattle, soy, palm oil, cocoa and coffee), as well as some derived products, are included in the initial scope of the regulation proposal (3).

The scope is set to be reviewed and updated regularly, taking into account new data. This will allow for adapting it to changing deforestation patterns. Poultry is not included in the initial scope.

The initial choice of commodities is based on the findings of the impact assessment backing the legislative initiative, which can be consulted online (4). The aim was to include the commodities through which the EU has the most significant impact on global deforestation and forest degradation.

The assessment was done objectively, based on a broad review of the relevant scientific literature. This literature review did not lead to the conclusion that poultry was among the top commodities leading to EU-driven global deforestation and forest degradation.
