WUWM has been appointed as a member organisation of the Economic Board of the European Market Observatory for Fruit and Vegetables (European Commission).
With a view to helping the EU agriculture sector to cope better with market volatility and to read market signals on February 22nd 2019 the EC announced the launch of two new market observatories including one for certain fruit and vegetables. The product focus of the fruit and vegetable market observatory will be on tomatoes, apples, citrus fruit, peaches and nectarines.
As a result of our efforts to make WUWM better known and to establish working contacts with the Directorate General for Agriculture and Rural Development (DG AGRI) of the European Commission, we are pleased to inform you that WUWM has been selected and is appointed as a member organisation of the Economic Board of the European Market Observatory for Fruit and Vegetables.
WUWM will be represented at the meetings of the Economic Board by the following persons:
Tomatoes sub-group: Mr. João Tiago CARAPAU
Citrus fruit sub-group: Mr. Ioannis TRIANTAFYLLIS
Stone fruit sub-group: Ms. Julie HANOT
Pip fruit sub-group: Ms. Eugenia CARRARA
As with other existing market observatories for crops, sugar, meat and milk, the fruit and vegetable market observatory will be available online and will ‘provide a wide range of market data complemented by market analysis, short-term outlook reports and medium-term prospects’ reports.
The work of the fruit and vegetable market observatory will be supported by ‘a board of market experts for each sector’ who ‘will meet regularly to discuss the markets’ state of play and data’
