EurActiv reported on the 6 December 2013 that French cereal producers claim the reformed CAP would create competition distortions in Europe, especially with German farmers, who would receive more subsidies.

However, they should be able to secure compensation with a plan to raise the share of biodiesel to 7% of the total content of transport fuels sold on the continent.

EurActiv reported on the 17 December 2013 that
