The start of the ecological transition makes it necessary to reflect on the role of livestock supply chains in the Farm to Fork strategy. This strategy will in fact represent a substantial change in EU agricultural and food policy and will have a structural impact on food production and the productivity of the entire sector over the next 10 years. The European associations representing the entire livestock supply chain have recently launched a video appeal to be more involved in the legislative process that will lead to the application of the Farm to Fork strategy. The fear is that in drafting this plan, the enormous progress made by the livestock sector and its interconnection with other important food and non-food chains are not taken into consideration. The European supply chain linked to the production of animal proteins joins to initiate a dialogue with the European institutions on this issue, in the common interest of European farmers and consumers.
Here the video appeal launched by the European livestock supply chain “The 9 paradoxes of the Farm to Fork”.
