PM Announces Allocation of €171M to Support Organic Livestock Farming

VOLOS – Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis on Friday announced the allocation of additional resources amounting to 171 million euros for the support of organic livestock, while attending the inauguration of a new cheese-making unit of the company Greek Family Farm in Magnesia.

“We are ready now and we have found the relevant funds to allocate 171 million additional resources to organic livestock. In this way, we will satisfy more than 2/3 of the applications from livestock breeders, while another 70 million will be allocated to support organic agricultural production,” he said.

The additional funding will contribute to the wider transformation and digitisation of primary production, which is part of the National Recovery Plan “Greece 2.0”, with the provision of almost 600 million euros in investments, while Greece managed to secure 19.3 billion euros from the Common Agricultural Policy for the new programming period, keeping EU support unchanged at a time when resources at a European level have been reduced by 10 pct.
