Situation on the dairy market

The 2959th Council meeting on Agriculture and Fisheries held in Brussels on 7 September 2009 took note of the Commission communication on the situation on the dairy market in 2009 and had an exchange of views on the matter framed by a Presidency questionnaire. Most delegations welcomed the in-depth analysis carried out by the EC but had difficulties to agree on which measures would be best suited to solve the current difficulties. Several delegations indicated that the measures proposed were insufficient to solve the crisis. However, the outcome of the health check was not put into question. The Council gave mandate to the Special Committee on Agriculture to further examine the various actions proposed with a view to discuss them in October. The Commission representative ruled out those suggestions which she estimated could contradict the “Health Check” commitments, such as the increasing of intervention prices or the freezing of dairy quotas. However, she declared that she was ready to closely look at another set of suggestions addressing labelling, quality or promotion issues.
