Possible new private storage regulation for pork

07-02-2008 | |

The Netherlands is lobbying Brussels to draw-up a new private storage regulation for pork.

Support has come from other EU countries, according to Frans van Dongen, spokesman for the Dutch Freedom Party (PVV) in Brussels.

The new regulation should not provide for storage of as much meat as in the previous regulation in October, which resulted in 100,000 tonnes of pork being taken out of the market. The regulation ended with the granting of subsidies.

The decision will be taken in the meeting of the EU Managing Committee on Pigmeat on February 18 and 21 next.
