The European Commission tabled a proposal that will make available crucial information on how prices are determined as agri-food products move along the food supply chain.
The proposed measures will cover the meat, eggs, dairy, fruit and vegetables, arable crops, sugar, and olive oil sectors. National authorities will be responsible for the collection of price and market data. It is essential that the information provided is accurate and timely.
Greater transparency can support better business decisions and improve trust in fair dealing between the stages in the food supply chain. Having access to timely and easily accessible information about market developments is also key to compete effectively in global markets.
