Further 730thousand euro for the School fruit scheme



In this way the Eu additional quota assigned to Italy amounts to 11,418,947 euros, more than doubling the base, which amounted to 9,521,200 euros. With these words the Minister of agricultural food and forestry policies Luca Zaia commented the news of the increase in resources granted the 29 of March by the Management Committee of the School Fruit Scheme in Brussels.

"I am pleased with the success obtained by Italy the 29 March in Brussels, because we were able to obtain an increase in resources for the program 'School fruit scheme', besides the doubling of the funds already received a few days ago. With these additional 730 thousand euros, resulting from the redistribution of resources not used by other countries, we can further enhance this initiative, so useful for educating children to a healthy diet thanks to the good products of our territories. This allocation rewards the management policies carried out by our country, which has managed to exploit the full potential of the Community program, managing a widespread distribution of fruit and vegetables in many Italian schools. "

With these words the Minister of agricultural food and forestry policies Luca Zaia commented the news of the increase in resources granted the 29 of March by the Management Committee of the School Fruit Scheme in Brussels to Italy for further 730 thousand euros, since the resources not used by other States have been redistributed to countries with programs that are already active.
"In this way, the Minister said, the Community additional quota assigned to Italy amounts to 11,418,947 euros, more than doubling the base, which amounted to 9,521,200 euros. Thus, for the period 1 August 2010-31 July 2011, we will have Community resources amounting to 20.94 million euro. Adding to these the 15.16 million euro of national co-financing, we get 36.1 million euros for the entire national program. "
"I want to emphasize that this programme, besides, being important for the education of our children creates new opportunities for the development of Italian fruit and vegetables, a supply chain that involves all regions of our country"
