Markets for agricultural products

EU legislation supports the production and marketing of agricultural products, taking into account the specific nature of the individual products. 2007/2008 will see a period of transition from the sectoral approach, where each category of products is governed by its own common organisation of the market (CMO), to the single CMO, a new, unified, approach covering all products. Despite this technical revolution, the principles adopted under the common agricultural policy (CAP) will continue to apply. This new unified framework will be applied gradually to the relevant sectors in the course of 2008.
