NEWS | Update on a Common Food Policy for the EU

 

A three-year process of research and deliberation will come to a head in January, when IPES-Food releases its final report, 'Towards a Common Food Policy for the EU'.

IPES-Food's Common Food Policy vision has been developed over the course of five policy labs in Brussels, four local labs around Europe, and the EU Food and Farming Forum ('EU3F'), which brought together more than 200 food system actors in May 2018. 

On September 12-13, IPES-Food's Desmond McNeill participated in an evaluation and brainstorming workshop on healthy and sustainable food systems hosted by the EU's Joint Research Centre (JRC), a feed-in event to November's Austrian Presidency conference.
