Q & A: European Green Deal: Commission prepares new initiatives to boost the organic farming sector
What role will the organic sector play in the Green Deal, and more specifically the Farm to fork and biodiversity strategies?
Organic farming is a type of farming supported by the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) that can help deliver on the sustainability of food production and consumption, whilst also contributing to the protection of nature and reversing the degradation of ecosystems. Organic farming responds to the growing societal demands for quality food produced with high environmental, biodiversity and animal welfare standards. The latter is recognised by the proposals for the future CAP and by the Farm to Fork and Biodiversity strategies. Both strategies therefore include the target of reaching 25% of agricultural land under organic farming in the EU.
