Understanding the EU Farm to Fork Strategy and Its Implications for U.S. Agriculture took place via Zoom on Tuesday, April 27, 2021 at 9:00 a.m. CT.

The EU Farm to Fork Strategy is at the heart of the European Green Deal and its ambitious agenda to make Europe the first climate-neutral continent by 2050. With a series of policy recommendations focused on creating a sustainable food system from end to end, this strategy will have ripple effects throughout the food and agricultural value chain not just in Europe, but around the world.

What does this mean for global food security and agricultural trade, and what might the implications be for U.S. agriculture specifically? Listen to our panel of experts to advance your understanding of these policies and their potential impacts:

The original Forum audience submitted so many exceptional questions that we were only able to address a few during the allotted time of the original broadcast. We were grateful to panelists Tassos Haniotis, Alan Hardacre and Marta Messa for spending an additional hour with us in an hour-long follow-up session to dig into some of those questions. Watch the additional Q&A session for even more rich discussion about the EU Farm to Fork Strategy.
