Turkey: AMENDED New Rules by Turkish Government on Poultry Feed Restrictions

The new implementation period for a law on poultry feeding which would impact the Turkish poultry sector was going to start on January 1, 2016, as reported in December 28, 2015 GAIN Report `New Rules by Turkish Government on Poultry Feed Restrictions` number TR5067, but it has now been postponed for one year. This law will now come into force on January 1, 2017. The Poultry sector is still concerned that if the use of poultry by-products as feed is not allowed, they won’t be able to import a sufficient amount of soybeans as a substitute because of Turkey’s current Biosafety Legislation.
