Terms of reference for the sustainability agri-food chain roundtable
Objective: To act as an informal platform for agri-food chain partners to discuss and share on issues relating to sustainability.
The round table brings together agri-food chain industry associations whose activities are impacted by the European legislative framework related to sustainability. While the primary aim is to ensure a common understanding of key developments, the Roundtable will also develop joint communications on related issues when there is a clear common interest within the group.
