In this course, we anticipate changes in food legislation due to the European Farm to Fork strategy. Current development will be highlighted, and possible consequences for governments, agrifood businesses, agricultural and food-related organisations will be discussed.
Why follow this course?
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 an interactive part, we all discuss possible future scenario’s that may apply to the direct environment of the participants of the course.
