European Green Deal - Farm to Fork Strategy for Sustainable Food


FPRI and the European Union are pleased to invite you to this seminar. 

The “Farm to Fork” Strategy, part of the European Commission’s Green Deal, is integral to Europe’s ambitious response to climate change challenges along the food chain. The “Farm to Fork” strategy reflects the ongoing transformation of food systems worldwide and the goal of making Europe’s food system the gold standard for sustainability. “Farm to Fork” is also linked directly to current discussions on the future of the Common Agricultural Policy.

The EU experience is highly relevant to the debate around food system transformation—Europe’s policy- and private-driven initiatives demonstrate that green best practices can be successful in jointly increasing economic efficiency and environmental and climate sustainability. This seminar will review the “Farm to Fork” strategy and its implications for European and global agriculture.
