Italy: 25 million Euro to support affected companies by ASF


The decree, which received the agreement of the State-Regions Conference, is aimed at supporting companies in the pig sector that have suffered indirect damage due to the application of measures for the prevention, eradication and containment of the African swine fever epidemic ( ASF) and the blocking of exports of processed products, starting from 13 January 2022 until 30 June 2022 and which are located in municipalities subject to health restrictions.

60% of the resources are allocated to agricultural production and 40% to companies in the slaughtering and processing sector.

The objective of the decree is to support the entrepreneurs involved and to cope with the crisis deriving from the eradication measures, the company shutdown, the impossibility of marketing the product according to normal commercial channels, the blocking of exports and other types of indirect damage.

In particular, small and medium-sized primary production enterprises and enterprises in the slaughtering and pork processing sectors, affected by the restrictions on the movement of animals and the marketing of derived products, located in the municipalities subject to health restrictions indicated in the decree, those that in 2021 used pigs or pork from the Regions affected by the provision and those that in 2021 exported pork or processed products to non-European countries where it was impossible to totally or partially export cured meats from Italy in the period exam.
