What does the document contain?

The Strategic Policy Guide for 2024-2029 for European Agrifood aims to restore the agrifood sector to a prominent position on the EU political agenda. In recent years, the sector has been marginalized and unfairly blamed for climate and health crises. The document is addressed to the future representatives of the European Parliament, urging them to support the strategic role of the agrifood supply chain in the ecological transition, considering socio-economic variables, productivity, competitiveness, and technological leadership. The guide is structured into three sections: agriculture, businesses, and health.


  • Centrality of agrifood: promote production, resilience, and efficiency of European agrifood supply chains.
  • Food self-sufficiency: encourage productivity and competitiveness, reduce food waste, and invest in infrastructure and digitization.
  • Animal welfare and innovation: balance animal welfare, sustainability, and competitiveness, support regenerative agriculture and new business models.


  • Balance in sustainability: integrate economic, social, and environmental needs without bias towards foods.
  • Enhancement of production: consolidate and streamline the agrifood sector, stimulate investments, and reduce bureaucracy.
  • Energy sustainability: promote the efficient reuse of waste heat and reduce energy waste.


  • Food education: promote a balanced diet and the Mediterranean diet, addressing obesity with effective policies.
  • Scientific information: invest in education for informed food choices and improve public health. –

The document calls for deep reflection and concrete commitment to enhance agrifood within the European context, fostering a sustainable and inclusive ecological transition.
