Summary of Decision

The HCC considers that the validity of the Commitment in relation to the market for the supply of raw cow's milk should be extended for one more (last) year, on the one hand, in order to further strengthen the bargaining position of dairy producers vis-à-vis the companies DELTA – MEVGAL and, on the other hand,  on the grounds, without prejudice to the implementation of the Commitment to date with a time delay by MEVGAL and, in part, also by DELTA, that the Commitment, as far as it was implemented, was effective, taking into account in particular that, for the coming year, any constraints of any kind that existed in its timely, and therefore effective, implementation have been eliminated. In this regard, the HCC considers that the quantities of organic milk purchased by the parties should be excluded from the calculation of the minimum guaranteed price of fresh cow's milk per prefecture, from 01.01.2021 and for as long as the commitment Α.1 - Α.1.1 provided for in HCC Decision no. 650/2017 remains valid, so that during this period the undertaken commitment is consistent with the meaning and purpose of HCC Decision no. 650/2017.
