The PROOF Core Values and Standards are underpinned by the Model Code of Practice for the the Welfare of Animals - Domestic Poultry, so when a farm or a product manufacturer becomes a PROOF Licensee it is a requirements that they meet all the standards, including any codes for the welfare of the hens. Animal welfare is a very important part of the PROOF ethos so we look at all aspects of egg production, not just the farm environment. Housing is critical to comfort and productivity of the hens for example so we are working with manufacturers to provide robust, code compliant mobile sheds that work well in Australian climates.
Manufacturers or retailers of poultry housing and equipment can apply for a PROOF License. Here you will find the standards for this level of License.
The Preferred Supplier program is new, so watch this space.
