Common organisation of the markets in fruit and vegetables (CMO) Promotion

At the beginning of these support measures, there are in principle at least 15 fruit or vegetable producers joining forces. If this group fulfils certain conditions, a producer organisation (PO) may be set up.

After or parallel to recognition, producer organisations draw up operational programmes (OPs). Under this OP (3-5 years), producer organisations can receive EU funding from the European Agricultural Guarantee Fund (EAGF). The OP is financed 50% each by contributions from producers and EU aid. EU aid is granted annually up to a limit of 4.1% of the value of marketed production (comparable to the turnover of POs). Support will be given to actions and measures aimed at strengthening the market position and competitiveness of producer organisations. The main objectives of the programmes include further bundling of supply, promotion of marketing, quality improvement, improvement of environmentally sound production (e.g. organic production or integrated production) and market-oriented production. For each action envisaged, indicators of success shall be identified to measure the effectiveness of the implementation of the action.
