Milk producers handed €2.2 million fine ({{commentsTotal}})

Estonian milk producers have to pay 2.2-million-euro fine for exceeding European Union quotas.

Nearly 300 producers are liable for overproduction fine at the rate of 27.83 euros per 100 kilograms. In total, 280 dairy farms have to pay 2,218,212 euros. The figure would have been larger were it not for the cuts following the Russian food import ban.

The fines can be paid in instalments over three years.

Estonia agreed to adhere to EU's annual dairy quota system to curb overproduction in 2004, when it became a EU member state. The system was discontinued on March 31, but that did not save Estonian farmers from fines for 2014.
