Background information

Facing rising food prices as a result of inflation, the government issued the Order on the Compulsory Reporting of Data on Prices of Agricultural Products on 31 May 2023. It obliges food producers, intermediaries, manufacturers and traders to send monthly reports on the purchase or selling prices, the quantities purchased or sold and the origin of agricultural products. The measure aims to monitor, analyse and control food product prices for cereals, meat, milk, eggs, fruit and vegetables.

Content of measure

Reporting obligations apply to the whole food supply chains, including producers, intermediaries, manufacturers and traders. They are:

  • Micro-enterprises with an annual turnover between €500,000 and €2,000,000
  • Small enterprises with an annual turnover between €2 million and €10 million
  • Medium-sized enterprises with an annual turnover between €10 million and €50 million
  • Large enterprises with an annual turnover of more than €50 million

Companies must send data to the Agency for Agricultural Markets and Rural Development. With the help of informed evidence, the government will engage in a dialogue with stakeholders in the food industry to find effective ways to control prices in the food chain.
