POLITICO Future of Food and Farming Summit

Where? Paris

When? September 28, 2023

The EU’s agri-food sector faces a host of challenges. Russia’s invasion of Ukraine disrupted a bloc striving for further resilience and climate neutrality in a post-pandemic context, impacting food and fertilizer supplies, while the resulting energy crisis has saddled both farmers and consumers with higher prices.

In the run up to the 2024 European elections, co-decision makers are racing to get as many proposals written into legislation as possible including the pesticide legislation, a proposal on new genomic techniques and food labeling among others. And, nearly five years on, do the promises of the Green Deal remain empty words? Has Europe delivered on its Eu’s flagship green plan to reshape how Europeans farm and eat? And in a fast-changing world, how can the bloc address the current challenges it is facing while taking the opportunity to reign in climate change and embrace innovation?

Now in its seventh edition, this year’s summit aims to zoom in on the bloc’s delivery of the Common Agricultural Policy and Farm to Fork strategy, while throwing a spotlight on other decisive issues– including food affordability in a tense geopolitical and trade environment to greener practices and innovation.

Taking place on September 28 in Paris, this high-level annual rendez-vous will convene top-notch EU and national policymakers, farmers, industry leaders, scientists, and NGO representatives to debate what lies ahead for Europe’s food and agriculture sector through exclusive interviews, thought-provoking panel discussions and interactive roundtables.
