Answer given by Mr Wojciechowski
on behalf of the European Commission
Question reference: P-001758/2020

The Commission is fully committed to an adequate response to the COVID-19 crisis and is doing the utmost to make sure that essential goods and services remain available and the food supply chain functions effectively(1).

A wide range of measures has been adopted to address the COVID-19 crisis in the agricultural and horticultural sector. In particular, the Commission adopted a set of exceptional measures(2) designed to support the agricultural and horticultural sector, including a six-month derogation from Article 101 of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union that allows operators in the live plants and flowers sector to adopt self-organisation market measures.
