European farmers request maintenance of the sugar quota


The Committee of Profesional Agricultural Organisations and European agrifood Cooperatives (Copa Cogeca) has asked the European Parliament on Thursday to support the extension of the quota system for sugar production in the EU beyond 2020, reported Europress.

Next week the extension of the system will be subjected to vote.

Farmers sent a letter to several MEPs to ask for their support for maintaining production quotas for sugar in the EU at least until 2020, in order to ensure “a stable market and a dynamic industry” in the field of sugar beet .

According to Europress the article, European farmers are also seeking “flexibility mechanisms” that can “automatically” bring to market share quotas “when necessary to balance the market.”
