Judgment of the Court of Justice of the EU in the case Doux Élevage and Coopérative agricole UKL-ARREE (C-677/11) on State aid


On 30 May 2013, the Luxembourg-based Court of Justice of the EU ruled in the case C-677/11 Doux Élevage SNC and Coopérative agricole UKL-ARREE v Ministère de l’Agriculture, de l’Alimentation, de la Pêche, de la Ruralité et de l’Aménagement du territoire and CIDEF on State aid. In its ruling, the Court said that a decision by which a national authority extends to all traders in an agricultural industry an agreement made within a recognised inter-trade organisation from that industry which introduces the levying of a CVO (cotisation volontaire obligatoire) does not constitute State aid. That contribution does not represent an advantage, granted directly or indirectly through State resources, which is imputable to the State. CIDEF (Comité interprofessionnel de la dinde française) (French turkey inter-trade committee), a non-profit association, has been recognised by the French authorities as an agricultural inter-trade organisation. In 2007, the trade organisations which were then members of CIDEF signed an inter-trade agreement on, inter alia, promoting and defending the sector’s interests and establishing a ‘CVO’ (cotisation volontaire obligatoire) (a contribution which is initially voluntary and later made compulsory by an Inter-ministerial Order). That agreement was extended to all traders in the sector on a compulsory basis in 2009 by a tacit Ministerial decision to accept that extension.
