Financial grant

On 7 July 2009, the European Commission allowed Italian authorities to provide investment aid for processing and marketing of agricultural products in the city of Bolzano.
 
The beneficiaries of the aid are "intermediate enterprises which have less than 750 employees and/or less than EUR 200 million turnover and fulfil all other conditions of Recommendation 2003/361/EC operating in the sector of processing and marketing of certain agricultural products (namely milk, fruits and vegetables) located in Bolzano"(para. 6, letter from the EC to Italy, Brussels 7.7.2009).
 
The aid will be handed out between January 2010 and December 2013 in the form of a direct grant conditional on keeping the destination of the immovable property for at least 10 years and for at least 5 years for other machinery. Also, the total budget of the scheme may not surpass EUR 20 million and each recipient shall provide an own contribution of at least 25%, may it be through own resources or external financing (but free of public support).
 
By the decision of the Commission from the 29 January 2014, the existing aid scheme has been prolonged until the end of 2014.
 
According to the Commission, "in view of the fact that the scheme concerns the sector of processing andmarketing of agricultural products where trade between Member States exists,there is a risk that the aid could affect that trade." (para. 31, letter from the EC to Italy, Brussels 7.7.2009)
 
A state measure in the GTA database is assessed solely in terms of the extent to which its implementation affects the extent of discrimination against foreign commercial interests. On this metric, the state aid proposed here is discriminatory.
