Special payment from food retailer
Several food retailers have decided to support the German farmers in the acute crisis in the pig market, as a sign of solidarity, quickly and easily through special payments.
These special payments will be paid out to you at 100%.
The measure will begin no earlier than week 50 2020, the start date depends on the food retailer. For organizational reasons, the additional payment will be paid at the beginning of the year 2021.
The bridging aid is limited in time until 31.03.2021 or limited in monetary terms as soon as the VEZG quotation reaches the price of 1.47 €.
The amounts are based on the specifications of the food retail trade and are linked to the commodity value of the meat. Therefore, there will also be fluctuations in the payouts.
The payout will be in the form of an additional payment.
We kindly ask you to refrain from prior inquiries about the amount of the additional payment, as we can only inform you about the payment amount as soon as we have received the additional payment from the slaughterhouse.
If you have any questions regarding the additional payment, please do not hesitate to contact your contact person in the accounting department.
