Position Paper on AMR

Position Paper on AMR

Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) represents today one of the most dangerous threats to humanity and a unique challenge to decision makers. In the past years, AMR has gained major political attention and since 2016, the date of our last position paper on the topic, the debate has evolved, the investments in research have grown and the public awareness has also increased. Different stakeholders have different roles to play in tackling AMR and consumer co-operatives have taken up this challenge very seriously.

For these reasons, we decided to look back at the issue and update our views on AMR so to be in line with recent national and international developments. Considering the scale of the problem, the recent improvements can only be considered the first steps in the right direction. Systemic solutions able to stop AMR and, eventually, curb the current trends are still missing. Euro Coop's actions in this field aim to set an example of how the food retailing sector can contribute to fight AMR.
