Apparently the origin is obscured here deliberately, to not having to admit that the meat comes from the intensive fattening criticised by us.” In their replies, all producers relied on directives (EU regulation 98 / 58; 1774/2002), which should guarantee a proper rearing and keeping of animals. The EU directive on the protection of farmed animals (98/58) “sets, namely” Set minimum standards. However, these rules are all normative, not absolute.
