Transforming the EU Agri-Food Sector

January 12, 2018

Joint declaration to transform the agri-food sector in Europe into a more competitive, sustainable and trusted sector, securing the production of safe, nutritious food that every consumer loves.

The European Federation of Food Science and Technology (EFFoST), together with the European Technology Platform ‘Food for Life’, EIT Food, FoodDrinkEurope, Food Nexus and FOODforce, have issued a declaration to transform the agri-food sector in Europe into a more competitive, sustainable and trusted sector, securing the production of safe, nutritious food that every consumer loves.

These organisations, key stakeholders in the agri-food sector representing farmers, food producers, academia and other actors in the food industry, share a common vision to create a broad, pan-European movement with the citizen at its heart, connecting and leveraging all actors and initiatives underway.

The signatories of the declaration call on the European Commission and Member States to support this strategy through a comprehensive program in FP9, targeting technological solutions in food security, sustainable farming, food safety and healthy nutrition.
