The food and drink industry builds long-term partnerships with Europe’s farmers to secure a local agricultural supply, creates value and develops market opportunities for agricultural products and connects farmers and consumers in the food chain.
Farmers and the food and drink industry are strongly interdependent. The industry relies on the supply of safe and competitively priced agricultural raw materials, with the quantity and quality needed to produce sufficient and varied
food for European consumers and for its export market. Securing the long-term sustainability of our industry inherently means taking care of the long-term economic, environmental and social sustainability of farming.
