The EU’s Farm To Table Strategy, Various Points To Consider

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

  • 21 July, 2020
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.

Buy it, cook it, taste it, enjoy it. Lamb and goat, apart from being a particularly sustainable meat, are healthy. And it can be cooked in different ways.
