Declaration on sustainable food in FP9 sent to European Commission

On January 11, President of the European Commission, Jean-Claude Juncker, received a Declaration from FoodNexus together with EFFoST, EIT-Food, FoodDrinkEurope, ETP – Food for Life and FOODforce.

The Declaration announces a common initiative to transform the Agri-Food sector in Europe into a more competitive, sustainable and trusted sector, securing the production of safe, nutritious food that every consumer loves.

Commonly, we ask the European Commission and Member States to support a comprehensive programme in FP9 addressing Food Security, New Farming, Food Safety and Healthy Nutrition.

By the time of sending the declaration, a large number of companies and organisations across Europe have endorsed it individually, and the list is constantly developing.
