Extracts from the press briefing by Michael Mann, spokesperson of Mariann Fischer Boel, on a private storage aid scheme to help the Irish pork market

12 views

Michael Mann, spokesperson of Mariann Fischer Boel, Member of the EC in charge of Agriculture and Rural Development, held a press briefing on 11 December 2008 to announce that the European Commission would propose a private storage aid scheme to help the Irish pork market. The Commission presented this proposal to the Management Committee - the Committee of Member State experts that votes on management measures for the agricultural markets. The European Commission made the proposal because of the exceptional circumstances and the difficulties that the pigmeat market in Ireland was experiencing. This EU-funded storage scheme will involve only meat coming from pigs reared in Ireland on farms not affected by contaminated feed. Under the aid scheme, a maximum of 30,000 tonnes of pigmeat can be stored for a period of up to 6 months. The level of aid varies according to the cut of meat.
