Our food chain is full of surprises and our food is handled by people you will most likely never meet. Where did your coffee come from? Who grew your cocoa for your chocolate? Who made your bread? We are about to start a journey together, finding our way through the food systems.

In every step we take, we’ll walk side by side with one of our activists around the world. These are farmers, chefs and everyone in between. These people are all contributing to a more sustainable food system and they try to enhance access to good, clean and fair food. But we will also listen to stories of indigenous culture and knowledge, which can inspire us to think in a different way.

We want to give a stage to the people, whose voices are often not taken into consideration, or who are simply overlooked in the debate around food. We want to demonstrate that we all contribute to a more sustainable food system, that everyone has a story to tell and that there's a lesson in every single one of them.

    EU Farm to Fork Strategy: Science, Civil Society and the Planet over Corporate Interests.

    EU Farm to Fork Strategy: Science, Civil Society and the Planet over Corporate Interests.

    Slow Food Europe is back with a second episode on the EU Farm to Fork Strategy, which was proposed by the EU Commission last year to accelerate the transition towards sustainable food systems in Europe.


    Last month, the EU Parliament voted in favor of this strategy despite repeated lobbying attacks from the agrifood industry. Slow Food warmly welcomed this vote, and took the opportunity to gather three panelists who have worked hard on the Farm to Fork Strategy since the start:


    Nina Holland, researcher at Corporate Europe Observatory (@nina_holland)

    Martin Dermine, policy officer at PAN Europe

    Tilly Metz, Member of the Group of the Greens/European Free Alliance at the European Parliament (@MetzTilly)


    In this episode, our guests talk about the EU Farm to Fork Strategy and what has happened since its publication in May 2020. They shed light on the intense lobbying that the agro-chemical industry has been doing to try to weaken the Strategy, and on how you, as European citizens can influence food policy, for example through the recent successful European Citizens Initative “Save bees and farmers”.


    For more details on the EU Parliament's vote of the EU Farm to Fork Strategy, read our recap article: https://www.slowfood.com/eu-parliament-gives-the-green-light-to-the-farm-to-fork-strategy/
