The Agricultural Markets Task Force (AMTF), chaired by Cees P. Veerman, presented today its report “Improving market outcomes - Enhancing the position of farmers in the supply chain” to the EU Agri Commissioner.


The AMTF stressed current issues and concerns faced by farmers and made recommendations, some of which reflect first moves to tackle unfair trading practices, contractualisation issues and competition law applied to agriculture so as to strengthen farmers’ position and ensure fair balance along the supply chain. Recommendations focusing on market transparency, risk management and futures instruments also add to the debate on volatility.


CIBE will continue to contribute to the discussion with the aim to provide beet growers with the appropriate regulatory framework and tools to face the post-2017 era.
