SAFE – Safe Food Advocacy Europe was created in 2015 out of a concern for public health related to food issues. One of the most influential factors of the EU’s food legislation is lobbying, indeed the large majority of EU legislation is influenced by lobbyists. There are more than lobbyists in Brussels, 70% of them are working for businesses, only 10% work for NGOs. Thus, SAFE was created to ensure that consumer’s health and concerns remain at the core of the EU’s food legislation. SAFE is the only NGO in Brussels focusing only on the protection and representation of EU consumers in the food sector. SAFE monitors the EU’s food legislation process and cooperates with EU legislators and its actors to draft comprehensive food regulations. Mission Strengthening the voice of civil society in the EU debate over food regulation, thereby reinforcing participatory democracy in the EU. Increasing public awareness of food safety issues, noticeably by organising training programmes and seminars designed to allow citizens to make informed decisions on the food they eat by learning how to read food labelling (additives, food colourings, MSG). SAFE is giving training to children and teenager in school to reduce excessive sugar and food colorants consumption. Supporting independent research by identifying priority areas for research and raising funds.

Agriculture & Progress, a platform where the agricultural and primary food processing industry join forces for sustainable agricultural production.Integrated and innovative crop production techniques, including the use of plant protection products in Integrated Pest Management, have been used by European farmers for many years and are constantly being improved. These reliable and safe tools allow farmers to meet production standards both in terms of quantity and in terms of quality.Society is however, more and more critical and raises questions on agricultural practices. We have heard those concerns and are putting the platform at the heart of the debate, taking into account the demands and expectations of consumers.As it is clear that progress is needed in the safety linked to the use of plant protection products, we work towards ensuring the use of safe products for farmers, the environment and consumers. In that context, we work to improve practices to move towards a minimum of inputs while trying to continue to improve our sustainability. Farmers like progress and are ready to welcome new innovative techniques. However, it needs to be understood that research, studies, trials, implementation and the overall transfer of knowledge is a process that takes time and cannot be done overnight.The aim of our transversal, European platform is to provide society and decision makers in a pedagogic way with answers and suggestions on the needs and challenges of guaranteeing sustainable agricultural production and the important role of innovation in this context. Agriculture & Progress aims to establish a strong communication with civil society, local networks and the media.Confronted with bans and restrictions on the use of plant protection products and new breeding techniques (NBTs), the farming and primary food processing communities’ capacity to sustain production and to further improve competitiveness and good agricultural practices is jeopardised in the short and medium term. Our goal is to plead for the development of a solid regulatory framework that guarantees an appropriate adaptation, a balance between health, environmental protection, and qualitative agricultural production whilst guaranteeing an adequate level of income for the farming community.

Food & Bio Cluster Denmark is a non-profit cluster management organisation, incubator and project organisation with nationwide coverage and headquarters located in the Central Denmark Region. The organisation was founded in 2020, by a merger between four Danish clusters to form a new “supercluster”, one of the largest of its kind in Europe with 250+ members ranging from small start-ups to some of the largest companies in the world. The merger was formed in collaboration with the Danish Agriculture & Food Council and Danish Food and Drink Federation and with additional support from Aarhus University, Technical University of Denmark, University of Copenhagen, and Danish Technological Institute. Food & Bio Cluster Denmark is a team of 40 specialists with different skills and backgrounds and manages on average about 40 regional, national, and international projects – all centred around innovation, financing, and internationalisation within the agriculture, bioresources, energy, environmental technology, and food sectors. The cluster has five physical locations across Denmark, and is therefore well-connected with stakeholders in Denmark, as well as private companies and research institutions. The aim of Food & Bio Cluster Denmark is to create synergies and initiate sustainable solutions for the future, maintaining the country’s internationally recognised leading position within food innovation and ensuring that Denmark continues to be the centre of development for future solutions within food and bioresources. By sharing resources from the four organisations, Food & Bio Cluster Denmark gains new resources and skills, enabling it to further support the food and bioresources sectors in the country.

Trade4SD is a 4-year project devoted to research on a topic which is high on the domestic as well as multilateral, EU and bilateral trade policy agenda. The ambition of the project is to explore and foster the positive linkages between trade and sustainable development, to provide policy recommendations for the creation of new opportunities for agents involved in the global, regional and national agri-food value chains, and to define conditions for sustainable livelihoods of farm producers in the EU and developing partner countries. Trade is a central factor in shaping global, regional and local development. Increased trade, empowered by the growth of Global Value Chains (GVCs), has boosted productivity and incomes in many ;Trade can also contribute to food security, improved nutrition through diversification of food baskets and give poor farmers access to high value markets. However, if not fairly regulated, trade might generate increases in inequality and negative impacts on working conditions in developing countries, and compromise the environment. According to the recent World Bank Report (2020a), beyond policies to facilitate participation in Global Value Chains directly, complementary policies, such as labour regulations and environmental protection measures, are needed to share their benefits and attenuate any costs. Trade policy has an important part to play in achieving the SDGs.

Clarity, Community and Ownership – Empowering farms to successfully outwinter | AHDB
Yesterday
AHDB
Join us for a sesion from Groundswell 2024. AHDB's Amy Hughes chairs a session on outwintering practices, such as bale grazing, are gaining traction throughout the UK, with farmers increasingly adopting these systems. Those implementing these systems are citing cost reductions, improved soil carbon management, and enhanced animal health. Despite these reported benefits, there remains a lack of robust quality, performance, and financial data to substantiate these claims. In response to this need, AHDB has commissioned an economic assessment of seven farms participating in the Innovative Farmers field lab in collaboration with Pasture for Life. This initiative aims to shed light on the impacts of bale grazing across various locations, soil types, and herd sizes. Through the lens of clarity, community, and ownership we will discuss the implementation of outwintering strategies, exploring what’s driving those farmers that are making it work. Panellists included • Emily Grant, an independent consultant and facilitator. Her business, Forrit, specialises in helping sheep and beef producers develop resilient pasture-based farming systems. • Angus Nelless farms in a family partnership located in mid Northumberland. The cattle and sheep are Pasture for Life and Organic certified. • Francesca Cooper is co-Director of Nunwell Home Farm, a mixed regenerative farm raising pastured pork and eggs and grass fed beef on the historic Nunwell Estate on the Isle of Wight. Principles of Clarity, Community and Ownership: • Clarity: Defining clear goals for farming businesses and the lives of those who run them. • Community: The role of knowledge-sharing among farmers, researchers and industry experts to collectively improve outwintering techniques. • Ownership: How ownership of their decisions can/has empowered farmers when they are provided with the necessary support, resources and information.
