Aid for green olive producers in Halkidiki

Question écrite de Mme Maria SPYRAKI - Commission européenne

Question de Mme Maria SPYRAKI,

Diffusée le 30 août 2022

Subject: Aid for green olive producers in Halkidiki

Heavy hail in Ormylia has irreversibly damaged 95% of the Halkidiki edible olive crop, a PDO product, just a few days before harvesting was due to begin. Around 3 000 hectares in that area are devoted to olive oil production, the chief primary sector occupation there1. Losses resulting from this year’s disasters are estimated at EUR 1.8 million, while growers of edible green olives lost 80% of their production last year owing to a poor crop.2

Given that this is an important PDO agricultural product n Greece and that 85% of the crop is exported:

1. Can the Commission say which European programmes have been implemented in the last programming period to support olive growers and investment in this sector and what progress has been made?

2. What funding has been earmarked for assistance for Greek olive growers and what has been the take-up thereof?

3. Could additional funding be channelled into this sector to cover the losses sustained as a result of exceptional weather events?

Réponse - Commission européenne

Diffusée le 29 septembre 2022

Answer given by Mr Wojciechowski on behalf of the European Commission (30 September 2022)

The current Greek Rural Development Programme 2014-2022 (RDP) (3) includes amongst others measures open to olive growers for quality schemes, investments in agricultural holdings, producers’ organisations, organic farming and for the restoration of agricultural production potential damaged by natural disasters and catastrophic events and the introduction of appropriate prevention actions.

The amount attributed to the RDP for the period 2014-2022 is EUR 6 512 million. On 31 May 2022, the financial execution was at 61.13%.

To mitigate the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic a temporary rural development measure was adopted giving Member States the possibility to use available funds for support to the most affected farmers.

Greece attributed EUR 94.3 million additional support to the olive oil sector (4) using this measure in the RDP and the financial execution is at 100%.

The ‘Working programmes of the olive sector organisations 2021-2022’ (5) contain the currently available resources for the vertical integration of Greek olive oil production.

Greece also compensates farmers for natural disasters and adverse climatic events with national funds (6) under the framework of the EU State aid rules (7).
