All documents and correspondence related to the proposition, organization and development of the Pork lovers Europe campaign, including the details of expenditure and its beneficiaries.

Dear Consumers, Health and Food Executive Agency,

Please pass this on to the person who reviews confirmatory applications.

I am filing the following confirmatory application with regards to my access to documents request 'Pork lovers Europe campaign'.

The objective of the Pork lovers Europe campaign was "to promote pork meat to restore the confidence of the consumer". As such, it can be understood that no private company should have been benefited by it directly or at least uniquely in economic or commercial terms. For that reason, I see no logic in denying the access to the documents requested in order to protect the "commercial interests of grant applicants". With regard to personal data, I guess it can be easily redacted.

Yours faithfully,

Álvaro Merino

Dear Consumers, Health and Food Executive Agency,

This is a confirmatory application to challenge the refusal to provide full access to documents related to my request of 09.02.2021 under reference number Ares(2021)1118450 on which I sought to obtain all documents and correspondence related to, received from or sent to INTERPORC.

The European Commission has identified 28 documentes and provided me with total access to 5 documents (nr 9, 10, 13, 24, 25), partial access to 15 documents (nr 2, 3, 4, 8, 11, 12, 14, 15, 17, 18, 19, 23, 26, 27, 28) and no access at all to 8 documents (nr 1, 5, 6, 7, 16, 20, 21, 22).

Two exceptions have been applied to the material redacted and non-disclosured documents. With this confirmatory application, I ask that you review what I would argue is the overbroad application of exception number two (Protection of commercial interests of a legal person), and the failure to fully and adequately consider the public interest in the release of these documents.

As far as I understand, the FromFarmToFork and LetsTalkAboutPork campaigns were not directed to improve the performance of INTERPORC in the internal market. On the contrary, they were oriented to reinforce the status of European pork meat in China and also promote the consumption of pork meat in Spain (along with other Member States). As such, I believe that putting this information in the public domain would not affect its competitive position on the market as much as stated. Furthermore, in terms of a specific interest, I inform you that I need this information as part of journalistic research into the way the pork meat lobby in Spain exercises its influence and gets financed.

In this sense, I would like you to incorporate the PorkLovers campaign to the present request and internal review (I asked for the same documents in the request Ref Ares(2021)738921 from 29 January 2021, but it was totally rejected). I see no sense in provinding access to documents related to the FromFarmToFork and LetsTalkAboutPork campaigns but not to those related to the PorkLovers one.

Yours faithfully,

Álvaro Merino
