  • To deliver on the European Green Deal, the European Commission will have to rethink policies in a variety of fields, not least in the agri-food sector. The initiatives linked to agri-food promotion, the renewal of the CAP and the "Farm to the fork" strategy will transform our current reality to achieve a more socially sustainable, environmentally friendly and healthy food production. To make this socio-economic transition a success, it is essential to involve all stakeholders in the reorganization of the European food markets.

    The EESC Employers' Group believes that we should provide entrepreneurs with the adequate conditions so that they can thrive and create innovative and decent jobs in a recovering economy. The EESC Employers' Group can play a critical role in creating an enabling and encouraging business environment also for the agri-food sector that meets the challenges and seizes the opportunities of sustainable development.

    During the ongoing COVID pandemic, the EU’s agri-food sector has shown resilience and continues to play a key role in providing Europeans with high quality and safe food. The Employers' Group has acknowledged the crucial role of the agri-food sector also in its position paper "Help businesses survive the Corona crisis" by stating that all actors in the EU food supply chain deserve strong support on the European and national levels, while food security should remain one of the top EU priorities for the future.

    As the role and competitiveness of the agri-food sector are of utmost importance to employers and businesses across the EU, the  EESC Employers' Group has organised the debate with the EU Commissioner Janusz Wojciechowski planned for 13th of July 2021 at 14:30 to discuss about the future of the European food markets.
