Joint open letter: EU food supply and solidarity response to the war in Ukraine

Joint open letter: EU food supply and solidarity response to the war in Ukraine

Euro Coop is one of the signatories of the joint open letter sent today, March, 10th, to the European Commission regarding the EU food supply and solidarity response to the war in Ukraine

 

The letter comes as a reaction to the statement by Commissioner Wojciechowski that “if food security is in danger, then we need to have another look at the objectives of the Farm to Fork strategy and correct them”. On the contrary, Euro Coop and all the other signatories of the letter believe the crisis in Ukraine reminds us the importance of implementing the Green Deal and its Farm to Fork and Biodiversity Strategies. More than ever, the EU must discourage intensive farming practices and shift towards healthy, socially and environmentally friendly actions, in order to guarantee long-term food security, food sovereignty, and the overall sustainability of the food systems.
