Soon as many Egalim laws as episodes of the Star Wars saga?

This Wednesday, February 21, among the responses provided to the demands of the agricultural world, Prime Minister Gabriel Attal announced the presentation before the summer, to Parliament, of a new version, the fifth, of the Egalim law, an acronym to evoke the “balance of commercial relations in the agricultural sector and healthy and sustainable food”.

This text, adopted for the first time in October 2018, had the main ambition of securing the income of farmers, who are often mistreated during price negotiations for their products with the two behemoths that are the agri-food industry and mass distribution.

Since then, the text has gone through Parliament three times to be enriched.

“There was Egalim 2 in 2021 which tightened the constraints by making written contracts compulsory for the sale of agricultural products,” lists Anne-Catherine Loisier, senator (Centrist Union) from Côte-d’Or, co-rapporteur of the text.

The so-called Descrozaille law, also called Egalim 3, in March 2023, which notably addresses the circumvention of the law via the installation of purchasing centers abroad.
