This enables the activation of a project strongly wanted by Italy and fruit of the negotiation that the Minister of food, forest and agricultural Luca Zaia carried out with the Council of Ministers and the European Commission

The management committee of the Ocm fruit and vegetables approved, the 17 march, the project of the Eu commission for the Eu programme ‘fruit in schools’ adopted by the Council with rule (CE) n. 13/2009.

The European Commission has agreed to the Italian request to finance the scheme’s advertising billboards in the schools and the leasing of fruit distribution machines.

It is a program towards which the Eu has destined 90 mln euros. Of these, 9,5 mln will go to Italy, while other 6,8 million could be added with national funds.

“These new resources, commented the Minister Zaia, will enable to make operative the program from the next school year, with immediate benefits in the educational and health of the students and, at the same time, supporting the entire fruit sector section”.
