Implementation of the EU optional quality term “mountain product”: where do we stand in the different Member States?

Rewarding 15 years of Euromontana commitment to the topic of mountain products, the use of the optional quality term (OQT) “mountain product” was protected in November 2012 by the European Union with the (EU) regulation No 1151/2012. Following that, the European Commission adopted the delegated act (EU) No 665/2014 in June 2014. Since then, several countries have moved forward with the implementation of the OQT at the national level. The delegated act gave some room for manoeuvre to the Member States (MS) in implementing the term. Euromontana has monitored this process in twelve countries so far.

This study was first published in early 2016 and was updated at the beginning of 2017. This updates (November 2017) takes into account the feedback of the conference on “How to better valorise mountain food products? Launch of the European Charter for Mountain Quality Food Products” organised on 18th October 2017 by Euromontana.  To see the whole article click here (only available for our members)

The Rural coalition expressed its opposition to the recent Council proposal for the post-2020 #CAP budget. Rural areas & #ruralvoices deserve an adequate budget to tackle to the challenges faced by our territories. See more in our common open letter⬇️

"The rural development Pillar of the CAP is indispensable to the coherence of the CAP. It is thanks to this Pillar that #youngfarmers can receive assistance to set up their farms, crucial support for them and their future in the sector," says @JDecerle at #ruralvoices 🇪🇺 🌱

A very strong message by MEP @paolodecastro during the #RuralVoices event in favore of a strong #CAP budget needed for delivering on ambitious plans #GreenDeal and #Farm2Fork!
