Intervention buying

When market prices for certain agricultural products fall below a predetermined level, the public authorities of the member states may intervene to stabilise the market by purchasing surplus supplies, which may then be stored until the market price increases. The product may then be returned to the market for sale, exported to a third country or disposed of in an alternative way.
