November 30-December 01, 2015
Description:
148th EAAE Seminar "Does Europe need a Food Policy?"
Location:
Brussels, Belgium
Subject:
everal European markets are characterised by oversupply and low farmer prices, with society and policy makers discussing sustainability, environment, the relation between food and health and ethical topics, such as animal welfare and food waste. In addition, current value chains are under pressure and new structures are upcoming. These developments raise the question whether agricultural policy should develop into a food policy and how such a policy should regulate the retail and food industry and its increasing control over agriculture and its responsibility for healthy diets. What would be the optimal institutional arrangements between public authorities (at EU or member state level), agri-business (including farming) and civil society? In other words, does Europe need a Food Policy? This is the central question at the 148th EAAE Seminar. [gem?_?? den Informationen des Anbieters - according to site editor's information]
