ENSA’s perspective on the European Commission’s Farm to Fork Strategy

The European Plant-based Foods Association (ENSA) strongly supports the objectives of the European Commission’s Farm to Fork strategy to accelerate the transition towards a sustainable food system, through sustainable food production, processing and consumption. We call for the recognition of the contribution that plant-based foods make to a healthy and sustainable diet through their inclusion in dietary guidelines that take into account both nutrition and environmental sustainability. Sustainable dietary guidelines should be used as reference points to encourage consumers to rebalance their diets by including more diverse plant-based foods and to support European farmers to produce high-quality plant protein and and other sustainably-grown crops such as oats, almonds etc.

For specific suggestions on how the EU can support sustainable plant-based diets from farm to fork, please see ENSA’s position attached.
