Meeting at Ministry of Agriculture “Apple Market”

On March 4, 2019, a meeting was held between the representatives of Korca apple producers with the Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development Mr. ÇUCI. The meeting focused on the apple market, as the situation in the apple market in Korce and beyond is alarming. Currently about 60% of production in refrigerators or 12 000 tonnes are in the last days of shaving and simultaneously refrigerated producers risk losing their production and others. In fact this meeting was the third after two meetings that ADAD Malore initiated at the MARD on September 26, 2018 to precede the market and on January 23, 2019 to present the difficult apple market situation and the reasons for this difficulty. From this meeting we have the commitment of the Minister of Agriculture for favoring the apple market.
