Brussels, the 18th of February
The International Platform of Insects for Food and Feed – IPIFF – the Brussels-based umbrella organisation representing stakeholders active across the insect production value chains publishes today a ‘Position Paper’ entitled ‘The Contribution of the European Insect Sector to Improving Sustainability from Farm to Fork‘.
As part of the ongoing discussions on the development of the ‘Farm to Fork’ Strategy, IPIFF wishes to underline a couple of elements of significance for the insect production sector, in particular with regards to the implementation of the objectives of the ‘Farm to Fork’ Strategy. This document aims at supporting the ongoing and upcoming deliberations on this topic, highlighting the contribution of the insect farming sector to improving sustainability from ‘Farm to Fork’.
The two-page document concisely illustrates IPIFF’s view on topics included in the Green Deal Communication document of the European Commission (publication that presents the ‘Farm to Fork’ as the key component of the European Green Deal on agri-food matters), as introduced by the Commission’s President Ursula von der Leyen on the 11th of December 2019. Considering that the official launch of the ‘Farm to Fork’ Strategy is expected on the 31st of March, we view this Position Paper as a constructive starting point with regards to the dialogue between the European institutions in charge of the ‘Green Deal’/’Farm to Fork’ and the European insect sector.
