Relive our 20-years anniversary reception
Last month, more than 100 people representing the European organic supply chain and movement, consisting of farmers, processors, retailers, certifiers, including researchers and more, gathered in Brussels to celebrate the 20 years anniversary of IFOAM Organics Europe.
Commission Vice-President Frans Timmermans attended the event and addressed the need to ’“change our ways” and urged for a long-term vision on food security. Moderated by Chief Editor of Agra Facts, Rose O’Donovan, the event continued with a panel debate focusing on organic in the European market and concluded with a session on the CAP’s role on reaching 25% of organic land, which saw the participation of Wolfgang Burtscher, Director-General of the EU Commission’s Directorate General for Agriculture and Rural Development (DG AGRI) and Jan Plagge, IFOAM Organics Europe’s President.
