European product diversity and quality
We call upon the European institutions to continue supporting and promoting the richness and diversity of European agriculture. For instance, the European school fruit, vegetables and milk scheme has contributed to shaping healthier diets. The European agricultural promotion policy has also proved to be a very successful tool in this area, raising awareness of the quality, diversity and high standards of European products. Such efforts must continue and must be supplemented by new initiatives.
Future European policy makers should continuously work to advocate the benefits of agricultural products, enabling consumers to make healthy choices. In addition, we need to take a stand against the misleading information and labelling systems that are spreading around the world and penalising the farming community.
