The European Commission has launched a consultation calling on citizens, farmers and other relevant parties to suggest ways to improve on fairness in the EU food supply chain.
The online consultation will run until 17th November.
“Farmers are the first link in the chain and without them, there would not be food to process, sell and consume,” said Phil Hogan, agriculture and rural development commissioner. “However, we notice that they often remain the weakest link.
“It is to address the shortcomings in the food supply chain that we are leading the way to act, in accordance with the Commission’s longstanding position to stand by European farmers. I encourage all EU citizens, farmers, stakeholders to share their views with us through this online consultation.”
