Belgium-Brussels: Development of the European Food Price Indicator EASME/GRO-SME-19-C/09
Section I: Contracting authority
Section II: Object
Development of the European Food Price Indicator EASME/GRO-SME-19-C/09
EASME is launching the present call for tender for the development and communication of food price composition indicators, based on extensive data collection and analysis.
The study aims to specify how consumer expenditure on food is distributed between the different stages of the food supply chain (farmers, processors and retailers). It shall primarily show patterns of price composition at Member State level, and cover the most often purchased basket of products. The indicators shall also show, to the extent that this is feasible, the relationship between the output value and input costs. In addition, the call for tender shall contain communication activities with stakeholders as well as the wider public, to disseminate the knowledge to actors in the business and to consumers.
The tasks will be performed at the premises designated by the contractor.
Any meetings will be held at the EASME's or the European Commission’s premises in Brussels.
The general objective of this call for tender closely relates to the third COSME objective – business environment for enterprises, including the competiveness of the enterprises and sectors.
The food industry supplies life-sustaining food products of high quality to all European citizens, but it is also an important economic sector in the European Union. The majority of the enterprises in the food supply chain are small and medium sized.
The initiative for the call for tender comes from the high level forum for a better Functioning Food Supply Chain (HLF).
The project aims to increase the public awareness on the distribution of the added value and other components across the food supply chain. It shall allow operators (mostly SMEs) to compare the average costs and margins of economic operators between various Member States, allowing them to identify best practices and replicate them in the local context.
The project shall also stimulate competitiveness.
The Commission Implementing Decision C(2018) 568 final of 5.2.2018 on the financing of the support measures of the Programme for the Competitiveness of the Enterprises and small and medium-sized enterprises (COSME).
