Friends of the Earth Malta (FoEM) & the Malta Youth in Agriculture Foundation (MaYA) welcome the reform of the Pitkali Market since the current operation at the market has been heavily criticised due to lack of transparency in prices and a lack of traceability, as weighing and data inputting are still done manually.
Both organisations presenting this document have been for quite some time pushing for better supply chain management when it comes to local products, therefore we look forward to seeing the imminent implementation of the Pitkalija Reform.
