Farm to Fork

The Farm to Fork strategy is part of the 2019 European Green Deal. The objective of the program is to make food systems fair, healthy and environmentally-friendly.
Food systems cannot be resilient to crises such as the Covid-19 pandemic if they are not sustainable. The Farm to Fork Initiative within the European Commission demands 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.
Making food systems more sustainable brings new opportunities for operators in the food value chain.
We will discuss with experts from politics and science which political measures and investments in new technologies are made to this end.
