European Union: European Commission Publishes Roadmap on a Future Regulation to Integrate Sustainability Into All Food-Related Policies

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)   |   E42021-0075

On September 28, 2021, the European Commission published a roadmap outlining a new regulation being developed to increase the sustainability of all foods placed on the EU market. The upcoming regulation is part of the Farm to Fork Strategy and is likely to establish rules on “sustainability” labeling of food products and minimum criteria for sustainable public food procurement for schools or public institutions. The future regulation also aims to create an enabling environment for future policy and legislation by raising the political and legal profile of sustainability, including climate neutrality concepts, in the food system. Stakeholders can comment on the roadmap until October 26, 2021.
