The Agri-food Promotion Policy review conference
The conference on the review of the promotion policy for EU agricultural products is part of a consultation process, collecting the opinions of stakeholders and civil society on the impact of different policy options being considered as part of the review. The process included an open public consultation, in which respondents were asked a series of questions concerning the policy review. Through their answers, respondents will feed into the impact assessment and may contribute to the formulation of new legislative proposals.
Both the conference and the wider consultation process will focus on how promotion policy enhances the competitiveness of the EU agricultural sector while contributing to EU policy priorities, notably the farm to fork strategy and the Europe beating cancer plan.
IFOAM Organics Europe’s Vice-President Marian Blom will take part in the panel discussion on how to enhance competitiveness of the EU agri-food sector in the internal market through the promotion policy. Other keynote speakers include:
- Prof. Alessandro Banterle, Department of Environmental Science and Policy, University of Milan
- Mr Claude Vermot-Desroches, President, EU–OriGIn
- Ms Ondina Afonso, Head of Quality & Research Department, Chair of Producer’s Club, SONAE MC
