“French farm sector review to be implemented early next year”

According to Agriculture minister Didier Guillaume, France will delay until early next year a decision to raise regulated minimum food prices and limit bargain sales in supermarkets aimed at increasing farmers’ income.

The regulations, which were made after a sector-wide review, were expected to be presented during a cabinet meeting on Wednesday. “This was postponed because of other issues,” Guillaume told CNews TV on Wednesday, referring to widespread protests over fuel taxes that have hit France since November 17.

According to, the minister said the decisions from the field-to-fork sector review will be implemented by the government in January or February, when agro-industrial groups will be in talks with distributors.
