Food waste is one environment related problem threatening the future of the planet. Worldwide there is a big discrepancy between areas menaced by starvation, and those with a thriving economy and a high quality of life. Food waste is just a symptom of the unbalanced, unfair world we live in. In order to bring everything to a state of equilibrium, and to gain distance from a more uneven future, the EU is currently drafting the European sustainable food policy

Food waste is one environment related problem threatening the future of the planet. Worldwide there is a big discrepancy between areas menaced by starvation, and those with a thriving economy and a high quality of life. Food waste is just a symptom of the unbalanced, unfair world we live in. In order to bring everything to a state of equilibrium, and to gain distance from a more uneven future, the EU is currently drafting the European sustainable food policy.

On November 28, at the Committee of the Regions, the issue of food production was addressed in a comprehensive way meant to contribute to the opinion on sustainable EU food policy the CoR is drafting. France and other EU states have already adopted laws to monitor and reduce food waste, and it seems like the EU is trying to spread this practice to all its member states. But there are, of course, problems to be faced and questions to be addressed: how could an integrated EU sustainable food policy be reinforced?, how important is it to set individual “sustainability targets”?, how stakeholders can be involved to improve the governance in food policy? etc. 

Between 26th and 28th September, 2016, Frederic Soudain, FEDRA Senior Advisor, travelled to Albania as part of an official visit organised by the European Commission DG Near (Directorate-General for Neighbourhood and Enlargement Negotiations).

 

Between the 8th and 11th of September, in the royal setting of the Brussels Park, the “eat! Brussels, drink! Bordeaux” festival will allow free entrance to all those eager to enjoy international culinary flavours.

FEDRA’s Regional Growth Session at the European Business Summit (EBS) on 1 June 2016 will gather between 150 and 200 stakeholders from 80 to 100 different regions, and FEDRA decided to use the opportunity to promote regional chocolate producers across Europe.

FEDRA's kick-off event of the Regional Flavours Initiative was a success as 120 people came to the Sofitel Europe, FEDRA's partner in this adventure, to taste the regional food and drink specialties from Pescara (IT), Algarve (PT) and Languedoc-Roussillon (FR) thanks to Vini & SaporiMonte do Além and BiBoViNo, our food and wine providers!
