Anger of banana planters who denounce Odeadom controls and sanctions

The collective of banana planters in action from Guadeloupe is angry with ODEADOM. He denounces the controls and sanctions carried out by the Overseas Agricultural Economy Development Office. Controls and sanctions that they consider disproportionate. Planters believe that these new practices threaten their activity.

The banana planters are angry… This Monday, June 17, an agricultural procession headed to Basse-Terre to meet the state official. The snail operation resulted in numerous slowdowns.

The Overseas Agricultural Economy Development Office is in the crosshairs of the collective of banana planters in action in Guadeloupe. These professionals denounce controls and sanctions that they consider “disproportionate”, inflicted by ODEADOM.
This collective believes that these recent control practices are worrying. The planters demanded an emergency meeting with the prefect. Failing that, they threatened to mobilize.
A delegation was finally received at the prefecture in the morning.
Louis-Guy Faro, the president of the collective of banana planters in action of Guadeloupe, expresses the origin of the discontent.

The operators denounce the disproportionate controls and sanctions carried out by engineers who, according to them, know nothing about bananas. Professionals fear a punitive multiplication of controls, which could threaten the allocation of POSEI aid.
The overall objective of Specific Options Program for Remoteness and Insularity (POSEI) is to improve the economic and technical competitiveness of agricultural sectors by taking into account their geographical and economic handicaps, in particular remoteness, insularity, small surface area, terrain and difficult climate, economic dependence on -with respect to certain imported products and international competition.

After two hours of discussion with the Director of Food, Agriculture and Forestry of Guadeloupe, Guy-Louis Faro came away satisfied with the exchange. But no notable progress except the promise to get closer to ODEADOM to address the problem. The president of the collective of banana planters in action of Guadeloupe, however, said he was worried about the future of POSEI.
