The Farm-to-Fork Strategy and cooperation in the agri-food supply chain- ENRD-supported virtual webinar
December 2, 2021 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm
The launch of the European Commission’s Forum on Best Practice in the AgriFood Supply Chain gathered expertise from across Europe at the ENRD-supported virtual webinar on 2 December.
More than 80 participants took part in the Forum’s first session which combined keynote perspectives from different European Commission services and practical experience from successful producer organizations. The event was opened by Maciej Golubiewski, Head of Cabinet for Commissioner Wojciechowski, and Michael Scannell, Deputy Director General, DG AGRI. They highlighted the value of sharing good practices in transparent supply-chain cooperation that strengthens positions of producers and others during the EU’s transition
to more sustainable food systems. Delegates taking part included producers, processors and retailers with information being provided about relevant Farm to Fork tools that can help drive a transition to sustainable food systems – such as the Code of Good Conduct for Responsible Food Business & Marketing Practices to which over 100 organizations have already signed up to. See the Forum event webpage to learn about its findings regarding CAP mechanisms available for supporting producer organizations (POs) and more.
