THE COUNCIL OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Economic Community, and in particular Article 43 thereof,

Having regard to the proposal from the Commission (1),

Having regard to the opinion of the European Parliament (2),

Having regard to the opinion of the Economic and Social Committee (3),

Whereas the consumption of apples in the Community is stagnating; whereas, moreover, surpluses of apples are withdrawn from the market each year; whereas there are possibilities for increasing quantities consumed, in particular by bringing production closer into line with consumer tastes; whereas, moreover, fruit and vegetables are healthy products the consumption of which should be encouraged as part of a health policy;

Whereas possibilities of increasing consumption of products sold fresh and of products prepared from apples must be developed;

Whereas the producer organizations have a special role to play in the implementation of measures to achieve that development;

Whereas provision should be made for specific measures to increase the consumption of fresh apples and for the development and diversification of processed products to be encouraged by a financial contribution from the Community to the measures implemented;

Whereas the aim of the measures provided for is to achieve the objectives laid down in Article 39 of the Treaty; whereas provision should be made for a Community financial contribution towards the implementation of those measures from the Guarantee Section of the European Agricultural Guidance and Guarantee Fund,

Article 2

1. The Community shall make a contribution of up to 50 % towards the financing of measures undertaken in the framework of programmes with the objective of increasing the disposal of products processed from apples harvested in the Community.
