Brussels, 5 July 2021 – The voluntary EU Code of Conduct on responsible food business and marketing practices is launched at a Commission-led High-Level event today. It is one of the first deliverables of the Farm to Fork Strategy and its elaboration follows intensive stakeholder work since December 2020.

FEDIOL actively contributed to the Code since the start and views it as a balanced outcome of a collective effort. For FEDIOL, the Code sets out the actions that can be voluntarily pursued by operators in the chain to improve sustainability performance and communicate about it. The final text of the Code also takes into account the continuous efforts by all players across the value chain in maintaining the existing high level of EU food safety despite new challenges.

Our industry has a crucial role to play to produce food and feed as well as many non-food products. We are convinced that scientific progress, innovation, addressing environmental hotspots in our supply chains, supported by LCAs, and the use of bio-based products, will be critical for reaching our ambitious goals, explained, Jordi Costa, FEDIOL President. He added, “Our contribution is pertinent for fouri of the seven identified aspirational objectives, which we are endorsing.”

FEDIOL looks forward to carrying out the actions set out by the Code in support of its implementation, to working in the new governance launched under this Code and welcomes the continuous Commission involvement in this topic.
