Peaches and nectarines produced in France

Order extending an inter-branch agreement concluded within the framework of the Inter-branch Association of the Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Industry (INTERFEL) and relating to the marketing of size D peaches and nectarines – 2020-2022 marketing years.

The draft Order extends an agreement that aims to improve the quality of peaches and nectarines produced in France throughout the marketing year. The agreement aims to ban the marketing of peaches and nectarines below the size of 56 mm or weight of 85 g.

This provision follows from the marketing standard applicable to peaches and nectarines provided for under Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) No 543/2011 of 7 June 2011, which bans size D peaches and nectarines from being placed on the market from 1 July to 31 October.

The inter-branch agreement does not apply to peaches and nectarines intended for industrial processing and to those sold to the end consumer by producers on their place of business and from their production.
