PANEL DISCUSSION: Putting actions to words: the food supply chain after the Farm to Fork strategy
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 has been shaking and testing the EU food supply chain and food security – renewing conversations on food sovereignty – 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 on September 24-25, 2020 in an interactive virtual format.
During the fourth edition of this Summit, POLITICO will convene 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.
