Det ?r mycket debatt om Siciliens fallande jordbruk och det skylls p? konkurransen fr?n Spanien, Israel och Nord Afrika. En del ?r sant, men inte allt. I TV rutan sitter inte producenter och odlare utan s.k. ledare inom jordbrukspolitiken och d? kan man ocks? ta informationen med en stor skopa salt.

Mycket av Siciliens problem med jordbruk ?r:
* Nord Italien l?gger p? otroligt mycket skatter.
* Det finns inga fungerande f?rs?kringar
* Mycket av produktionen g?r via stela lokala och nationella distribut?rer som pressar odlarnas priser till s? l?ga att det l?nar sig inte att sk?rda.?Sedan s?ljs produkterna till h?ga priser till marknaden (menar ej konsument). Dessa distribut?rer tj?nar oerh?rda pengar. Inte alla ?r lika.
* Gamla gubbar v?grar st?lla sig ?t sidan. K?r med samma gamla stil i tron om att romarriket fortfarande st?r kvar.
* Katastrofal logistik. Transportbolag tar inte ansvar. Svaret blir bara Non Lo So eller Che posso fare..
* De f?retag som presenteras p? utl?ndska m?ssor ?r flertalet via Amicizia och gamla distribut?rer representerade med katastrofal service niv?. F?retag som m?nga stora import?rer l?mnat f?r l?nge sedan.
* Sv?ger politik, hot och v?nskapsrelationer som inte finns d?r om och n?r?det skulle falla.
* D?lig insikt i att vi lever i ett informations samh?lle. Apelsin lurenderiet som gjordes p? 80-talet och fick hela sektorn att falla fungerar inte idag. K?pare ?r oftast b?ttre informerade ?n s?ljare.

Sicilien har fantastiska produkter. Smakrikedom som inte finns annanstans. Det finns en stor marknad utanf?r som bara v?ntar. Det arbete som lyckats med vissa producenter hittills har visat att utl?ndska k?pare faktiskt k?per f?r ett lite h?gre pris d? produkter anl?nder i bra skick, problemen blir l?sta och ansvaret tas av den som ?r ansvarig i diverse faser.

Sakta, sakta g?r arbetet fram?t och vi ser resultat. Men som bakslag m?ste kvaniteter delas med vissa distribut?rer.

Sicilien och Italien m?ste inse att sl?ppa in konkurrens. Det betyder inte att du blir utan levebr?d, det betyder att du m?ste arbeta p? ett annat s?tt, vara uppdaterad och ?ppen f?r att f? en fungerande verksamhet. Din Amico kommer inte att st? vid din sida n?r ditt bolag faller.

Eng: There is much debate?about the Sicilian downfall of?agriculture and it is blamed?on competition?from Spain, Israel and North Africa. Some are true, but not all. In the shows are not producers and growers attending , but so-called leaders in agricultural politics and then you?have to take?the information with a large bucket of salt.

Much of Sicily’s problems with agriculture are:
* Northern Italy put on an awful lot taxes.
* There?are no?functioning insurances
* Much of the production goes through?local and national?stiff distributors who push prices so low that it is not worth harvesting.?Then the products are sold at high prices out on the market (not talking about consumer).?Distributors earns huge money. Not all are the same.
* Old blokes refuses to?put themselves?aside. Run by the same old style thinking that the Roman Empire still stands.
* Catastrophic logistics. Freight?companies?takes no?responsability. The answer is simply Non Lo So or Che posso fare.
* The companies that are presented at international fairs, the majority are there through Amicizia and distributors represented with?catastrophic level of service. Companies that many large importers left long time ago.
* Nepotism, intimidation and friendships that are not there if and when?all fall.
* Poor insight that we live in an information society. The orange?fraud made in the 80’s got the whole sector to fall, does not work today. Buyers are often better informed than sellers.

Sicily has great products.?Incredibly rich pure taste?that is hard to find. There is a large market outside just waiting.?Good work with some producers this far have shown that foreign buyers are actually buying with a bit higher price when the products arrive in good condition, problems are resolved and responsibility taken by the person responsible in the various phases.

Slowly, slowly the work goes forward and results are seen. But?with?setbacks,?to share?quantities with certain distributors.

Sicily and Italy need to realize to let in the competition. It does not mean you are left without paycheck, that means you have to work in a different way, be?updated and open to?others functioning. Your Amico will not stand by your side when your company falls.
