EU and Sustainability: Food to Fork Initiative

Food to Fork Initiative

Due to climate change, food security and the accessibility of healthy foods has been one of European Union's initiatives with the Green Deal. The Farm to Fork strategy aims to solve these issues by aiming to make food systems fair, healthy and environmentally friendly. It also aims to accelerate our transition to a sustainable food system that should:

  • have a neutral or positive environmental impact
  • help to mitigate climate change and adapt to its impacts
  • reverse the loss of biodiversity
  • ensure food security, nutrition and public health, making sure that everyone has access to sufficient, safe, nutritious, sustainable food
  • preserve affordability of food while generating fairer economic returns, fostering competitiveness of the EU supply sector and promoting fair trade
