Peaches not included in EC support measures for fruits and vegetables

The European Commission on Monday announced the approval of 125 million euros in support measures for perishable fruits and vegetables following a Russian embargo on EU food and agricultural products.

The decision concerned tomatoes, carrots, white cabbage, peppers, cauliflowers, cucumbers, gherkins, mushrooms, apples, pear, red fruits, table grapes and kiwis but did not include measures for peach and nectarine producers in Greece, Spain, Italy and Portugal. Russian demand for peaches usually accounts for 50 percent of Greek producers' exports.

EU Agriculture and Rural Development Commissionerm, Dacian Ciolos, on Monday said he had triggered the CAP emergency measures in order to reduce overall supply of a number of fruit and vegetable products on the European market as and when price pressures become too great in the coming months. "All farmers of the concerned products - whether in producer organisations or not - will be eligible to take up these market support measures where they see fit. Acting early will provide an efficient support to the price paid to producers on the internal market, help the market adjust and be cost effective," Ciolos said.

The European Commission stated that the situation would be assessed and discussed in a new meeting in Brussels on Friday.
