Ahead of the upcoming SCA of the Council (10 September) and EU Parliament discussions on the Proposal for a directive on Unfair Trading Practices, the signatories would like to draw your attention to the following crucial principles for a fair and well-functioning food supply chain:
(Brussels, 19 July 2018) FoodDrinkEurope welcomes the fact that the UK published its White Paper last week, as it offers Europe’s food and drink industry some indication of what the future relationship between the EU27 and the UK may hold, and also seems to be a step towards our sector’s main priorities, i.e. ensuring that frictionless trade will continue, current production processes will be maintained, burdensome administrative delays will be reduced and a hard border on the island of Ireland will be avoided.
(Brussels, 17 July 2018) Copa and Cogeca, CELCAA and FoodDrinkEurope welcome today's signature of the EU-Japan Economic Partnership Agreement (EPA), which took place during the EU-Japan Summit in Tokyo, Japan.
(Brussels, 10 July 2018) MEP Paolo De Castro today presented his draft report on the proposed Directive to fight unfair trading practices (UTPs) in the food supply chain to Members of the European Parliament’s Agriculture and Rural Development Committee.
