In response to the crisis caused by the COVID-19 pandemic and the paralysis of the productive sectors, as a result of the declaration of the state of alarm that has forced the confinement of the population and which has resulted in a decrease in the demand for certain products for beef, sheep and goat meat, the Commission has published Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) 2020/595 of 30 April 2020 granting aid for the private storage of beef, sheep and goat and fixing the amount of aid in advance. To guarantee a harmonized application, it is necessary to set minimum criteria so that the actions of the paying agencies, in the exercise of their powers, are carried out in a coordinated manner. These criteria have been agreed between the FEGA (Spanish Agrarian Guarantee Fund) and the different autonomous communities.
The current closure of the restoration has eliminated one of the large consumption bags for suckling lamb. “In this scenario, enjoying our suckling lamb, lamb and kid meat in domestic kitchens is the only current alternative for the survival of the producer sector,” says the interprofessional Interovic.
Suckling lamb meat is available in the usual points of sale, such as markets and supermarkets, which is an opportunity to fill the shopping basket and enjoy its potential aromas, flavors and textures at home. The European origin of this product guarantees maximum levels of organoleptic quality and food safety, having been raised in a traditional way.
“Its production brings great benefits to the environment thanks to the promotion of biodiversity, sustainability and the prevention of forest fires. This makes lamb meat an ideal product that adapts to the needs of professional chefs and amateurs of the 21st century”, says Interovic.
