Milk: three Member States face levies worth € 19 million


Denmark, the Netherlands, and Cyprus were the only Member States which exceeded their milk quotas in the 2009/2010 quota year, triggering superlevy fines for a total of €19 million, according to provisional figures published by the European Commission today. This compares with the €99m triggered last year and €340m the previous year. Following the increase in quotas agreed under the 2008 CAP Health Check, Italian production finished within quota for the first time, as global EU production finished some 7% below global quota volumes, compared with the 4.2% margin in the 2008/09 quota year (April-March). Dacian Cioloş, Commissioner for Agriculture and Rural Development, said: "Although these figures confirm that Italy has finally managed to stay within its quota, the 2009/2010 quota year will only be remembered for the particularly difficult market situation witnessed in so many Member States. Through our High Level Group established specifically to examine the market crisis, we have studied the situation carefully, and I am optimistic that the proposals that I will present in December will enable dairy producers to respond better to evolutions in the market and provide a more stable environment as we move towards the end of the quota regime in 2015.”
