|2015-07-09||The Case for a Review of the EU Dairy Intervention Prices|
The new 2014 to 2019 CAP retains the intervention system for butter and skimmed milk powder (SMP). However, now it is no longer about buying in product and building up stocks. Now, the EU Commission tells us, it is about providing a “safety net” which signals to markets a floor level below which dairy and milk prices cannot be allowed fall. However, that level is currently set very low—too low, and the legislation mandates the EU Commission to review it and adjust it when necessary.
