EU's 'Safety Net Measures' Ask Italy To Withdraw 50,000 Tonnes Of Product From Market In Counter-Sanction Response Featured

20 August 2015

As part of the European Union's (EU) counter sanction response to the Russian embargo, the European Commission created 'safety net measures' to allocate quotas to member states for food items to help balance the food market from August 8 of this year until June 2016.

The member states affected by the measures are countries that, over the past three years, had supplied the Russian market with “significant amounts” of product. The process of withdrawing products is meant to stabilize the market.

“This is a necessary response in the right direction and something we have worked hard on in recent weeks, along with Spain and France”, according to a statement from the Italian Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Forestry. “Protecting the income of affected companies is a priority. The quota of 50 thousand tonnes of withdrawals, allocated to our country, will allow us to move in this direction.”

Among the countries that are affected, Italy is expected to withdraw from the market 17,500 tonnes of apples and pears; 15,300 tonnes of plums, table grapes and kiwi fruit, 9,200 tonnes of peaches and nectarines, 3,3 tonnes of citrus and 650 tonnes of vegetables.
