The actors

The 2016 General Assembly and the  2015 Activity Report

This site provides information on the European current events and the actions which lead the AREFLH to the Commission and the European Parliament as well as a place to exchange experiences between the member regions and producer's organizations.

The Region's College, in close relation with the Producer's College, actively seeks new solutions in numerous fields such as the reform of the Fruit and Vegetable CMO, the Common Agricultural Policy, promoting consumption, quality standards, sustainable development, phytosanitary matters, negotiations with  other countries and ornamental plant production.

The President

Mrs. Simona Caselli. She is the Agriculture Councellor for the Catalan Government in Spain.

The Emilia Romagna region focusses on the importance of the political and budget choices for the European fruit and vegetable production that will shape the 2013-2020 common agriculture policy.

The region also highlights the importance of our production in European agriculture (worth 16%) but also its weaknesses and the need to consolidate and widen the economic organization of producers throughout the CMO (Common Market Organization).
