0n may 20th 2020, European Commission releases update communication on “A Farm to Fork Strategy for a fair, healthy and environmentally-friendly food system” . look at it here

 

The Farm to Fork Strategy is at the heart of the European Green Deal aiming to make food systems fair, healthy and environmentally-friendly.

Food systems cannot be resilient to crises if they are not sustainable. We need to redesign our food systems which today account for nearly one-third of global GHG emissions, consume large amounts of natural resources, result in biodiversity loss and negative health impacts (due to both under- and over-nutrition) and do not allow fair economic returns and livelihoods for all actors, in particular for primary producers.

Putting our food systems on a sustainable path also brings new opportunities for operators in the food value chain. New technologies and scientific discoveries, combined with increasing public awareness and demand for sustainable food, will benefit all stakeholders.

The Farm to Fork Strategy aims to accelerate our transition to a
sustainable food system that should:​

  • have a neutral or positive environmental impact

  • help to mitigate climate change and adapt to its impacts

  • reverse the loss of biodiversity

  • ensure food security, nutrition and public health, making sure that everyone has access to sufficient, safe, nutritious, sustainable food

  • preserve affordability of food while generating fairer economic returns, fostering competitiveness of the EU supply sector and promoting fair trade
