Non-organic feed derogations for dairy farmers

Non-organic feed derogations for dairy farmers

Following representations to Defra by all the UK Control Bodies and the organic dairy sector regarding loss of outlets usually supplied with organic milk due to COVID-19 restrictions; Defra has considered the request for non-organic feed derogations.

They have concluded that a derogation is available for those UK farmers having to sell milk as non-organic. 

If you are affected and are having to sell your milk as non-organic, please contact your Certification Officer directly for details of how to apply for a derogation.

We are committed to helping the organic dairy sector at this difficult time and ensuring that as a sector we all come through this crisis together.
