The first session took place on 23 February on Promotion Policies and how to make the most of it’

The EU has set up promotion policy to open new market opportunities for EU farmers and the wider food industry. In particular, the European Commission is prioritising promotion of sustainable practices in EU agriculture. As the most advanced sustainable method, organic should make good use of these promotion policies. This webinar provided guidance and concrete tips on how to submit successful applications. 

Among the speakers there were representatives from the European Commission to present the new annual work program, its priorities and provide us with insights to submit a successful application. Some of our members that are currently running a promotion programme also shared their experiences! 

The second session took place on 21 March and was about carbon farming and carbon certification. Our colleague Hanna Winkler explained what is the latest proposal of the European Commission and what it is needed for a holistic approach.
