As announced in last week’s News Flash, the Organic Trade Association has filed a lawsuit against the U.S. Department of Agriculture in response to the agency’s delay in implementing the Organic Livestock and Poultry Practices (OLPP) regulation, more commonly known as the organic animal welfare regulation. An article by Lynne Curry giving background and perspective on the issue appeared in this Monday’s edition of Civil Eats. Curry covers the Organic Trade Association’s arguments in the article entitled “Why the organic industry is suing the USDA over animal welfare.” You can learn more about this issue, from background information to viewing the complaint file at OTA.com. Please reach out Kelley Poole, OTA’s Vice President of Government Affairs if you have questions about the lawsuit and make sure to download our resources for talking to your consumers and customers.
