The European Commission is launching an EU-wide public consultation on how to make the EU food supply chain fairer.
Farmers, citizens and other interested parties are invited to share their views on the functioning of the food supply chain through an online consultation that runs until 17 November.
The EC says, “There are indications that the added value in the food supply chain is not adequately distributed across all levels of the chain due, for instance, to differences in bargaining power between smaller and thus more vulnerable operators including farmers and small businesses, and their economically stronger and highly concentrated commercial partners.”
It added that, the input received from the consultation will complement work on the simplification and modernisation of the CAP.
