Fruit and vegetable prizes decrease viewed by Italy

The problem of the decrease in prices is not focused in Veneto or Emilia Romagna but it depends on an international conjuncture: It is necessary that you organize yourselves so as to be stronger and to have a tough contractual power when contracting prices with the great distribution.

“There are 63 thousand tons of fruit and vegetables that do not have buyers. As short term measure to support the sector we will start a market withdrawal of the productive surplus in order to distribute it to those who needed more, the poor”.

With these words the Minister agricultural food and forestry policies Luca Zaia opened Macfrut 2009, the international fruit and vegetable fair.

The Minister sent an invitation to those present: “It is necessary that you organize yourselves so as to be stronger and to have a tough contractual power when contracting prices with the great distribution.” “Within the European union - Zaia continued - I am working on a com-participation on the final price. But Italy must aggregate the offer and invest on interprofession: scattered there is no place to go”.
