A Future Protein Plan for Europe Needs A Comprehensive Approach, says Slow Food

A Protein Plan for Europe is due to be presented at the high-level conference in Vienna at the end of November. Slow Food urges the European Commission not to compromise any further, and to ensure a sustainable supply of protein crops for human consumption and take into consideration all sensitive issues raised by civil society. Slow Food recognizes that a new Protein Plan could be an important development opportunity for Europe, but if it fails to address intensive animal production and broader options to diversify protein production, it risks becoming a lost cause. The Commission’s report on the development of plant proteins in the European Union will examine the current supply and demand of plant proteins in the EU and the potential for future development.

Terra Madre Salone del Gusto: the New CAP Has to Lead a Real Transition Towards a Sustainable Food System

The Civil Society agreed that the New Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) needs to be brave to outpace arising problems and to lead an urgent transition towards a sustainable food system at the thematic forum at Terra Madre Salone del Gusto. The biannual event, organized by Slow Food in collaboration with the Region of Piedmont and the City of Turin, has become a part of the European Days of Action this year. The movement tries to put pressure on decision-makers and calls for the better CAP. Terra Madre Salone del Gusto takes place in Turin, Italy, on 20-24 September.
