Compulsory grading and the consumer


, : Compulsory grading and the consumer. Acta Horticulturae (55): 335-338

The EEC spends an enormous sum of money each year on grading regulations for fruit and vegetables, but no economic appraisal of them has been carried out. An appraisal would have to examine all the alternatives to the present system, the purpose of the scheme and its costs and benefits and their incidence. This paper suggests an approach to the analysis of the effect of the EEC regulations on the consumer.
