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.

Recent records show that ranching is not the primary cause of climate change. Data from the Ministry for the Ecological Transition and the Demographic Challenge indicate that livestock meat productions represent only 7% of the total GHG emissions in our country. The livestock production, meat processing and marketing sectors have continued to carry out their activities since the declaration of the COVID-19 pandemic to keep the population adequately supplied with safe and quality food.

  • 30 April, 2020
Long queues at supermarkets and food shops. Half-empty shelves. Only a few products in refrigerators.

And many EU citizens born after the mid-1950s are not used to such experiences. But luckily - thanks to the many Food Heroes working against the clock throughout the entire food supply chain - food security should be the least of our worries in Europe in the face of this COVID-19 pandemic.
