Home > News & Articles > Spanish organizations disagreement with the new EU Organic Production Regulation

Eight Spanish entities that bring together almost 80% of the Spanish organic sector have jointly signed a statement, addressed to the Minister of Agriculture, Food and Environment, Isabel García Tejerina, stating their disagreement with the draft of the new European Regulation on Organic Production and the Labeling of Organic Products.

In this statement they request that the Minister should vote against the agreement to this document in the Special Committee of Agriculture so that it continues working in the deficiencies that the text presents. This seems the perfect timing because today there is a meeting between the Ministers of Agriculture of the member countries of the European Union to vote for or against the new draft of the Regulation of Organic Production and the Labeling of Organic Products.

  1. Its much more harder to become Organic Olive Farm in Spain compare to Morocco, Tunisia, Turkey, Egypt etc… for them, the whole field across the country and that can not be possible. Otherwise, why do we have so many Certificates and Controls to sell Organics EVOOs . Also Production cost is 5 times more in Spain compare to other production countries. We should have all the same rules . Because what happend offendm, some international packers Blend Cheap Organic with lets say another one from Sicily and its been sold as Organic Evoo from Italy… We should have at least 1 or 2 international Certificates equal to all under my opinion.
