HIGHLIGHTS FROM OUR 2019 EDITION
Agreeing on the priorities of the Common Agricultural Policy and making Europe’s agri-food sector more sustainable are amongst the most pressing issues EU policymakers are currently debating. POLITICO’s Agriculture and Food Summit returned to Paris for its third edition to explore the political reforms and digital innovations that have the potential to make Europe’s agricultural and food industry greener and more ethical.
Building on the success of the previous editions, this high-level event brought together 120+ of Europe’s most influential leaders in food and agriculture to promote a dialogue between policymakers, business leaders, entrepreneurs, consumers, and farmers. A mix of interactive sessions, panel discussions and interviews were moderated by POLITICO’s top food and agriculture policy journalists.
For the 2019 edition, POLITICO launched a pre-summit focus day on food sustainability during which the entire food chain was dissected: our speakers examined how to obtain sustainable commodities as well as reinforce the capabilities of food safety authorities and the role of consumer organizations. The following day, reforms pertaining to the Common Agricultural Policy and the competitiveness of Europe’s agriculture were discussed, while the impact of research and technological innovations – such as big data and gene-editing – was debated.
