Promotion of EU agricultural products outside the EU

The European Commission has approved measures to provide information on, and to promote agricultural products in third countries. Member States submitted 24 programmes to the Commission to be examined. The 7 programmes that have been accepted are from Greece, Italy, Poland and Portugal. The products covered are PGI and PDO, wine, fruit and vegetables, meat, spirits and olive oil. The EU contribution is € 10.9 million (50% of the total budget of the programmes)."EU promotion schemes are a good way of increasing the visibility of EU products on markets outside the EU and underlining the quality and traditions behind them,” said Dacian Cioloş, Commissioner for Agriculture and Rural Development. “As we announced in our recent report on promotion, the current information and promotion policy will be reviewed in parallel with the discussion on the CAP reform after 2013. The promotion instruments should provide EU producers with an effective tool, whilst attempting at the same time to reduce the administrative burden."
