(Brussels, 12 October 2017) Ahead of the last trilogue on agricultural issues in the Omnibus Regulation, FoodDrinkEurope warns that amendments, which go beyond simplification, could significantly change the 2013 political agreement on the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP). Major changes proposed by the European Parliament and the Council should be given appropriate consideration and be preceded by an impact assessment, in line with Better Regulation. Hence, such changes should not be accepted.

(Brussels, 13 September 2017) In his State of the Union address, Commission President Juncker said he "cannot accept inferior food for consumers" in certain markets - we fully agree. Practices which are not in line with existing EU legislation, if any, should be clearly addressed. We therefore welcome the Commission's commitment to improve and harmonise testing methodologies and we look forward to the establishment of a multi-stakeholder dialogue to assess and address the perceptions that exist in some Member States.
