Calls for recognition of assets in Sustainable Food Systems
(Posted on 16/03/20)
Ahead of the publication of the Farm to Fork Strategy, a gathering of 11 EU organisations of the livestock chain, including the European Feed Manufacturers' Federation (FEFAC), issued a common vision on the Green Deal, highlighting the positive contribution of animal products and feed to Sustainable Food Systems.
This open letter enclosed was sent to key EU Commissioners and puts emphasis on the progresses already achieved in terms of reduction of environment footprint over the past years, the importance of animal products for a balanced diet, the need to acknowledge the merits of all production systems and the importance of keeping science and safety as backbones of the Farm To Fork Strategy.
FEFAC was founded in 1959 by five national compound feed associations from France, Belgium, Germany, Italy and the Netherlands.
FEFAC membership today consists of national associations from EU Member States as full members and of an increasing number of observer members from non-EU countries. FEFAC is the only independent spokesman of the European Compound Feed Industry at the level of the European Institutions. FEFAC holds observer status in CODEX Alimentarius.
