As the introduction of the European Farm to Fork strategy was launched in 2020, as part of the Green Deal, a lot of new questions were raised. In it’s attempt to make the world food system sustainable in the near future, the European Union shows great ambition. What consequences this might have for governments, agrifood business and agricultural and food related organisations, will largely depend on new legislation.
Why join this seminar?
In this seminar we will anticipate on coming changes due to the European Farm to Fork strategy. This strategy intends to bring a lot of changes to the current agrifood systems that we know. To underline the need for these changes, a legislative framework is in development. In this seminar we anticipate on changes and consequences of these new food laws. In an interactive part we all together discuss possible future scenario’s that may apply to the direct environment of the participants of the seminar.
