Too many Moroccan imports

This article was originally published in Foodnews

SPANISH and French agricultural producer and exporter organizations, FEPEX and AOPN, have warned that Moroccan tomato exports to the EU were much larger than previously agreed. During December 2010, imports reached 70 479 tonnes compared with the 34 469 tonnes permitted. As a result, the organisations claim, the value of European imports has fallen below the preferential established price of EUR0.46 per kg. This situation has led to a "serious crisis" within the European Community, said FEPEX, with "serious losses for Spanish producers". However, it adds, despite constant complaints over how Morocco is operating, it happens every year and "there have not been advances in either import prices or management of the crisis".
