Romanian fruit, vegetable growers to be offered additional financial support
These excepcional measures, recently approved by the government, will allow fruit and vegetable growers to withdraw their products from the market for free distribution.

The financial support covers activities carried out since 1 July 2016 and up to 3,000 tonnes.
It will be given to producer organizations in the fruit and vegetable sector recognised under the provisions of the relevant European regulations and to individual fruit and vegetable producers who are not members of recognised producer organizations.
The payments will be made by the Agency for Interventions and Payment for Agriculture up until 30 September 2017. ■
