Production management

The Confederation can intervene in domestic food production in order to optimise and increase the degree of self-sufficiency. To this end, the Confederation can encourage the production of certain products or issue regulations on the quantities to be produced or processed and prioritise or prescribe their intended use. The aim of this measure is to achieve optimum domestic production in a shortage situation and to exploit existing production and processing potential.

This measure can only be implemented after several months of lead time.
