The EU’s Farm to Table strategy, various points to consider

The European Union is preparing a strategy to achieve a healthier and more sustainable diet. It is the so-called Farm to Fork Strategy, which will mark the evolution of environmental regulations or policies as important as the CAP. The Farm to Table strategy will seek to foster the circular economy, reducing the environmental impact of food production and lowering the percentages of food waste. The Commission's estimates affirm that each year more than 1.3 billion tons of food are wasted in the world, a third of world production. The Farm to Fork strategy may have consequences for the meat sector, due to the persecution of greenhouse gases and the elimination of aid and meat promotion campaigns. From Anafric, we try to answer the questions that arise regarding the strategy, through Carolina Cururella, one of the association's technical professionals.

Where does the polluting CO2 come from?

At Anafric we echo a news story published in the Diario de León. Contrary to the theory that made the field responsible for excess C02 emissions, caused by climate change, the new data support that livestock management is not to blame for this burden. Recent records show that ranching is not the primary cause of climate change. Data from the Ministry for the Ecological Transition and the Demographic Challenge indicate that livestock meat productions represent only 7% of the total GHG emissions in our country. The livestock production, meat processing and marketing sectors have continued to carry out their activities since the declaration of the COVID-19 pandemic to keep the population adequately supplied with safe and quality food.
