Answer given by Mr Hogan on behalf of the European Commission
Question reference: E-001228/2019

In recent years, the Commission has deployed considerable efforts to improve the market intelligence for fruit and vegetables and for wine, on the basis of the positive experience of the existing market observatories for other agricultural products. The two new market observatories for fruit and vegetables and for wine should be in place by autumn 2019. In the meantime, the Commission will continue to monitor regularly the developments of the EU markets in order to timely detect any relevant market disturbance.

As regards early warning systems to prevent market crises, the Commission believes that the existing common organisation of the markets contains sufficient tools to address possible market crises in the agriculture sectors and considers that a direct link between the observatories and activation of crisis measures is not justified.
