Dairy products cannot be left to market forces alone

Stable prices and fair incomes for dairy farmers are crucial to ensuring the supply of high quality dairy products and preserving a vibrant rural environment in Europe, says the EESC opinion on the future of the EU dairy strategy adopted at the 17 February plenary session. A few months after dairy farmers from across the EU demonstrated in Brussels against price swings on agricultural markets, the EESC has come out strongly in favour of maintaining market intervention measures in order to balance supply and demand. "Food in general and milk in particular are too important for the well-being of citizens to be left to the vagaries of a free, unregulated market", said rapporteur Frank Allen (Various Interests Group, Ireland).
