The measures are meant to ensure that general agricultural activity will not be discontinued in order to maintain the supply chain. This implies that farmers, as well as professionals in the agricultural sector, can continue their activity entirely, provided that they do not welcome visitors and that they respect barrier gestures / social distancing.
• Travel to the workplace for the exercise of professional activity,
• Travel to commercial entities and service providers
• Troubleshooting, dispatching, depollution (including removal of dead animals) and maintenance activities necessary for safety reasons
Maintaining such essential activity of the food sector therefore remains assured in the Grand Duchy. These derogations, put in place by the Government, guarantee the continuity of the production chain of quality foodstuffs in Luxembourg, from the supply of agricultural inputs to the supply of processing structures including deliveries of animal feed and animal transport.
Next week, Minister Romain Schneider will take part in the meeting of members of the EU Agriculture and Fisheries Council, by videoconference, intended to take stock of the effects of the epidemic on European agriculture and to put in place the necessary measures to cross this difficult period.
