Find out about Private Storage Aid, which products are eligible for it and how to check if a scheme is currently open.
Private Storage Aid (PSA) schemes are administered by the Rural Payments Agency and help traders with the cost of putting products into storage. This helps to stabilise the market for a product if there’s a surplus and prices become weak.
The European Commission (EC) will decide if it’s appropriate to open a scheme.
Private storage aid schemes can be for:
- white sugar
- olive oil
- flax fibre
- skimmed milk powder (made from cows’ milk)
- sheepmeat and goatmeat
Schemes will open depending on the market situation.
