MultiChick: Diversity and integrity in organic poultry meat production


Multi Chick aims to contribute to the growth in organic broiler
production through a re-evaluation of production systems. The price
of organic broilers is significantly higher than conventional, so a
high degree of credibility is needed to increase the low market
share of less than 0.8%. Therefore, it is inappropriate that the
current organic production has problems with animal welfare and is
dependent on foreign and conventionally produced protein and
hatching eggs. There is a need for systems that are more protective
of the ecological principles and the expectation of high animal
welfare and positive effect on the environment and climate. Efforts
will be directed towards new feeding strategies in the existing
systems and the development of new systems where new
phenotypes, integrated in the production of willow/crops in order to
achieve reduced N leaching, increase carbon storage and optimal
welfare, whisch can provide a basis for launching new brands. It will
provide additional value if there across the various systems is
created concept feed based on Danish ingredients and if the
hatching eggs produced organically in Denmark and thus provide
the sector with multiple genotypes. The project is expected to
identify barriers and opportunities throughout the chain from farm to
table and make suggestions for how food chains for organic highquality
chickens should be established so that the momentum of
the sector ensured.
