Seminar EU Farm to Fork Food Laws

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.
