Part of the European Green New Deal, this policy sets out a strategy for the European food sector to make it fair, healthy and environmentally friendly.
The Farm to Fork Strategy aims to accelerate our transition to a sustainable food system that should:(1) have a neutral or positive environmental impact, (2) help to mitigate climate change and adapt to its impacts, (3) reverse the loss of biodiversity, (4) ensure food security, nutrition and public health, making sure that everyone has access to sufficient, safe, nutritious, sustainable food, and (5) preserve affordability of food while generating fairer economic returns, fostering competitiveness of the EU supply sector and promoting fair trade.
