For an Ambitious and Dynamic Organic Sector


Belgium - 15/04/2013

On April 11, the day after the EC Consultation for the review of the European policy on organic agriculture came to an end, EU Farm Commissioner Dacian Cioloş told tha Advisory Group on organic farming that a few trends have emerged from the initial analysis of the contributions: citizens support organic farming in order to protect the environment; they want to see organic farming move ahead of conventional farming in terms of sustainability; European citizens want a farm sector and food that does not use or contain GMOs or residues of pesticides or chemicals and they are increasingly interested in natural, local and seasonal products.

Slow Food contributed to the Consultation.

European Citizens' Initiative against TTIP and CETA rejected by the EU Commission
Belgium | 16/09/2014
In response to the ongoing negotiations on the Transatlantic Trade & Investment Partnership (TTIP) and on the Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA), more than 200 European organizations, including Slow Food, launched a European Citizens’ Initiative (ECI): a tool to request that the European Commission deal with a subject and introduce a legislative proposal. The ECI called on the Commission to repeal the negotiating mandate for the TTIP, and asked for the CETA not to be concluded. Last week, the European Commission rejected the registration of this ECI, stating that the negotiating mandates on TTIP and CETA are not legal acts but rather internal preparatory acts between EU institutions, and therefore not contestable via an ECI. This decision reinforces concerns on the transparency of the negotiations and has been contested by the STOP TTIP alliance on legal grounds.
