The EU Commission publishes regulation that triples peach and nectarine withdrawal measures
The Official Journal of the European Union published on Saturday the "Delegated Regulation (EU) 2017/1533 as it regards the temporary exceptional measures to assist peaches and nectarine producers in Greece, Spain and Italy", which was applicable from 3 August, and triples Spain's peach and nectarine withdrawals, originally planned by the European Commission due to the Russian veto, going from 9,735 tonnes to 29,327 tonnes.
The Ministry of Agriculture and Fisheries, Food and Environment, requested the measure in order to provide the sector with more effective crisis management measures to balance the markets, justifying that the crisis management measures foreseen in the operational programs of the producers' organizations, as well as the exceptional aid measures for the Russian veto, approved by the Commission, which came into force on 1 July.
In the Regulation published on Saturday, the Commission recognizes that existing market disturbances require exceptional measures, with normal measures of crisis prevention and management falling short, as provided for in Regulation (EU) 1308/2013, an assessment fully shared by FEPEX. The Commission also considers that the market disturbance is only indirectly related to the Russian embargo but that, for practical reasons, it applies the regime of exceptional measures established by it.
For FEPEX, the expansion of withdrawals approved by the European Commission, together with the transformation into juice for free distribution, adopted simultaneously by MAPAMA, are the most effective measures that could be adopted, considering the sectoral nature of the crisis and access to withdrawals from all producers.
