The so called „Milk Package” was published in 2012 with the aim of boosting in a sustainable way the negotiation power of producers of milk and dairy products. Various regulations have entered into force since last October. But what about the concrete situation of the farmers in mountain areas?
What kind of support measures may the farmers expect in order to be able to survive? What needs still to be done? Those and other main fields of interest will be deepened during an experts’ discussion. Representatives of the different institutions involved in this reform of the milk quota system will be invited: European Commission, European Parliament, Committee of the Regions, including the experts who have produced on the request of the European Commission a study on the impact of the expiring of the milk quota system and its consequences.
Participants to the discussion :
- Moderation: Juanan Gutiérrez Lazpita – President of Euromontana
- René Souchon – Member of the Committee of the Regions, Chair of the Commission for Natural Resources (NAT) and President of Auvergne Regional Council (Président du Conseil régional d’Auvergne)
