Priorities for the Italian Presidency of the Council of the European Union
 

FoodDrinkEurope has published a short brochure outlining the priorities of Europe’s food and drink manufacturers for the Italian Presidency of the Council of the EU, which runs until 31 December 2014. The food and drink industry’s priorities for this new Presidency are grouped across four key policy areas, namely: promoting a competitive food and drink industry, encouraging balanced diets and healthy lifestyles, ensuring a science-based approach and fostering a more sustainable business model. Some of the priorities outlined in the brochure include:

  • Encouraging the development and implementation of an integrated EU Industrial Policy for food and drink;
  • Ensuring that the food and drink industry is duly consulted during the implementation discussions about the new EU labelling rules, in particular with regard to those implementing measures which have a direct impact on food and drink manufacturing;
  • Driving forward discussions on the proposed Novel Food Regulation, while making sure that this new proposal takes into consideration those elements where consensus in a previous draft has already been reached;
  • Supporting a more cohesive approach to safeguarding the sustainability of food systems for future generations.

You can download the full brochure at this link.
