EC launches consultation on food supply fairness

The European Commission (EC) has officially launched a consultation among citizens, farmers and all other stakeholders to suggest ways to improve fairness in the EU food supply chain. This is set to run until the 17th November.

“Farmers are the first link in the chain and without them, there would not be food to process, sell and consume,” said Phil Hogan, the EC ‘s agriculture and rural development commissioner. “However, we notice that they often remain the weakest link.

The EC commissioner concluded, “It is to address the shortcomings in the food supply chain that we are leading the way to act, in accordance with the Commission’s longstanding position to stand by European farmers. I encourage all EU citizens, farmers, stakeholders to share their views with us through this online consultation.”
