About The European Union (EU) and its Food System

A single entity, a single set of rules

The European Union (EU) is a political and economic union of 27 Member States. With an estimated population of about 446 million, the EU is one of the largest trading blocks in the world, including the agri-food sector, which employs over 4 million workers and over 300 000 businesses.

The European food system is recognised and trusted because of its harmonised, single set of food laws. The General Food Law Regulation applies to all EU and national measures relating to food and feed, pertaining to the production, processing and distribution of all EU agricultural food and beverage products. The core objectives of this legislation include ensuring food safety, improving food quality and generating consumer confidence.

EU food law protects as much the consumer, by guaranteeing high-quality and safe agricultural food and beverage products, as the health of the planet. Complementing the EU Green Deal, the Farm to Fork Strategy aims to make food systems fair, healthy and environmentally friendly. Priorities include a 50% reduction in the use of more hazardous pesticides and increasing the share of agricultural land under organic farming to 25% by 2030.
