About The Artisan
The UPA (Union of Small Farmers) has taken to the streets with a clear claim and is that the Spanish agricultural sector does not guarantee a fair price that allows at least cover production costs.
Most of the products are still sold at the same price as 30 years ago. And even in some cases at lower prices.
However, the costs assumed by farmers (energy, supplies, labor costs, livestock feed, etc.) have been updated, rising considerably.
The first and great proposal that comes from the countryside is the application of certain legislative changes that they consider urgent, such as the prohibition of selling at losses throughout the food chain.
Also, legally define what is considered a fair price for perishable products that are linked to production costs.
