European Forum on Food Quality

PROJECT

European Forum on Food Quality – the international network for quality agri-food

DESCRIPTION

The European Forum on Food Quality is a project that was created to bring together key players in the European agri-food sector, so as to monitor and analyse the evolution and future prospects of the system. These international events promote discussions at a political level, offering an opportunity for those who are creating a culture of food quality to compare their experiences: consumers, producers, scientific researchers, popularisers, local, regional, national and international public administrators. The Forum is organised in thematic panels that focus on issues of current interest, with the participation of speakers from around the world. The Forum is hosted by different cities in the EU.
