Green, innovative, competitive,
can Europe’s agri-food sector have it all?

September 24-25, Paris

We wish to inform you that we take the health and safety of our guests very seriously and are closely monitoring the guidance of the World Health Organization and local authorities to ensure we are compliant and can guarantee a safe environment for all participants.

Warming atmosphere, weather instability, loss of biodiversity threatening ecosystem productivity, those are just a few among many challenges the agriculture sector is facing. As climate change risks escalate, scientists and policymakers look to agriculture and food as areas for urgent action.

This is reflected in the new European Commission’s priorities, with the Green Deal taking shape, the Farm to Fork strategy coming to life and the expected finalization of the CAP reform. This year will be critical for an agriculture and food sector already challenged by trade wars and price volatility. As the coronavirus crisis is shaking and testing the EU food supply chain, we are yet to learn its full consequences for the agriculture and food sector.

Come and discuss with us:

  • What will be the on-the-ground impact of the sustainability as well as agriculture and food regulations introduced in 2020?
  • How can agri-food in Europe make both a competitive and sustainable leap forward?
  • How to ensure that transparency in the food supply chain benefits everyone?
  • What changes in food production will breakthrough technologies bring?
  • What will be the long-term implications of the current coronavirus crisis?

All these questions and more will be addressed during POLITICO’s Agriculture and Food Summit that is returning to Paris on September 24-25, 2020.

During the fourth edition of this Summit, POLITICO will convene 130+ of the industry’s top minds from the policy world, science, farming, agriculture, food industry and more. They will explore the new political reforms and innovative technologies that have the potential to shape Europe’s agricultural and food industry into a greener, more innovative as well as globally competitive sector.
