Poland: Aid for market withdrawal of apples exhausted in one dayThe applications from producers wishing to withdraw fruit from the market in exchange for EU compensations have exhausted the quota in just one day. The interest was so great that the withdrawal rate was set at 0.09, which means only every tenth apple could go to charity for EU money.
"In the Mazowiecki Regional Branch of ARiMR, we accepted about 3 thousand 387 applications. The Mazowieckie voivodship accounted for more applications than all other provinces combined," told the director of the Mazowiecki Regional Branch of ARiMR, Beata Kalinowska.
The European Commission under has granted Poland a quota for the market withdrawal of apples and pears of 77.5 thousand tonnes. This fruit is given to charity in exchange for EU compensations. The idea is to reduce the market supply and help fruit producers in selling their surpluses.
Compensation for the free delivery of apples to charities is 16.98 Euro per 100 kg, plus the cost involved in the packing and transport of the products. Withdrawn fruit must also meet the commercial quality standards.
This huge interest from the producers can be explained by the difficult situation on the market, as reported by the President of the Union of Polish Fruit Growers, Mirosław Maliszewski. He said that the purchase prices are quite low, standing at about 0.70 zloty per kilo (about 0.17 Euro).
