From 15/10/2020 to 16/10/2020

(Online)

The ‘Farm to Fork’ conference, scheduled on 15 and 16 October 2020 (World Food Day), is the first in what will be an annual gathering of European stakeholders willing to engage and help shape the EU’s path towards sustainable food systems.

Stakeholders across the food value chain, public authorities, international and civil society organisations, as well as other citizens and the interested public are invited to join the debate and contribute to the implementation of the recently adopted Farm to Fork Strategy for a fair, healthy and environmentally-friendly food system, which is at the heart of the European Green Deal. The event will also provide a forum for discussion on the challenges and opportunities linked to the transition to sustainable food systems, as well as on possible further areas of intervention.

The ‘Farm to Fork’ conference will be a virtual event and participants will be able to contribute to the discussion online and meet speakers through virtual networking opportunities.
