Europe is struggling with food surpluses and low prices for farmers. There is also a debate about the environmental impact of agriculture, animal welfare, healthy food, and waste.
A combined EU agricultural and food policy can help realise that, as Wageningen University & Research demonstrates. This will help tackle societal challenges like food security, climate change and inequality. It requires innovation in fields like energy and biomaterials, as well as social innovation and involvement of all chain parties, including consumers. This is another way in which Wageningen helps to improve the quality of life.
