IFOAM EU publishes its position paper on the Commission proposal

November 18, 2014

Following the Commission’s proposal for a new regulation to replace the current organic Regulation (EC) No 834/2007 the IFOAM EU’s position paper seeks to react to the Commission
proposal, evaluating the challenges and opportunities facing the sector and putting forward a roadmap towards sustainable development of organic production in Europe.

In this position paper IFOAM EU analyses the Commission proposal and provides concrete suggestions for how to develop organic food and farming in Europe but states that without substantial changes – as outlined in this paper – IFOAM EU would have no choice but to reject the proposal.

The position paper can be read in full on the IFOAM-EU website.
