The Government Buying Standards mandatory criteria in respect of eggs currently apply to fresh, in-shell eggs. The Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA) will be making necessary changes to the Government Buying Standards mandatory criteria to ensure eggs produced in conventional cages, an illegal production system across the EU after 2012, should not be used in any form whether this is fresh, powdered or liquid.
DECC receives its catering services through a contract procured by DEFRA, and so through this contract will comply with this mandatory criteria. DECC will also ensure that its NDPBs are alerted to this forthcoming mandatory criteria.
