THE MANIFESTO

Food for thought:

The challenges facing the European system

How to unlock the potential production of agriculture and the agrifood sector in the European Union

THE EUROPEAN AGRIFOOD SECTOR ​

Today, agriculture and the food & beverage sector account for 30 million jobs (13.4% of the total) and 3.5% of the total value added in the economy of the 28 EU countries. To achieve the objectives set for the next few years, the EU and its member states need ambitious policies, policies that will unlock the great potential of the European agrifood sector, so that they will maintain their global leadership position

 

KEY CHALLENGES

 

• Guaranteeing the food supply

Europe is a leading importer and exporter of food supplies, and its cultivated land is the most fertile in the world. It should take advantage of this to nourish its growing population and that of the entire world.

• Creating jobs and supporting growth

Europe can only be competitive at the global level, creating jobs and economic growth, if it concentrates on innovation, implementing the best practices and doing away with pointless regulations and bureaucracy hampering the agrifood sector.

• Creating jobs and supporting growth

Europe can only be competitive at the global level, creating jobs and economic growth, if it concentrates on innovation, implementing the best practices and doing away with pointless regulations and bureaucracy hampering the agrifood sector.

• Protecting the environment

Agriculture is in close partnership with nature and the environment. Innovative products, practices and technologies are needed to make the use of natural resources as efficient and sustainable as possible.

• Do well today for a better tomorrow

The agricultural and agrifood production chain invests in the future, constantly searching for new ways to be competitive, productive and sustainable (economically, environmentally and socially); our goal is to ensure that consumers in Europe and the world continue to have access to safe, high quality food at reasonable prices.

 

 HOW CAN WE ACCOMPLISH THIS?

In a time of great changes, that impact the entire agricultural and agrifood production chain, the competent authorities, at the national and EU level, must concentrate their efforts in the coming years on:

1) Promoting innovation

2) Promoting sustainability: work, productivity and efficient use of resources

3) The best possible policy: stimulate innovation in a barrier-free common market
