Yesterday, at the Agricultural Trade Mission succesful match-making event in Évora, organised by CCPH, I spoke to Pedro Pimentel. Mr Pedro Pimentel is Secretario Geral ~ Associação Nacional Industriais de Lacticínios (ANIL), and I asked him about the present situation and the role of ANIL.
Questions Pimentel is answering in this video:
start Can you describe the actual situation in dairy?
at 0.55 min Are there any winners or loosers in this conflict?
at 2.55 min ANIL and FENALAC have been critizised, for having people too long in high positions and lacking political power. What is your comment to that critisism?
at 5.13 min How do you think the situation will develop in the next 6 months?
In his answers, Pimentel mentions the following:
at 2.14 min the risks of putting excess power on producers: supply chain
at 2.40 min what ANIL tries to do
at 3.50 min about the Ministry of Agriculture: “… suffer from autism, (…) no strategy (…) no participation … ”
For those interested, more information about the dairy sector in Portugal can be found in the presentation as given by Mr Pimentel.
