The EU farming sector in line with society's expectations

"Together with the 28 Member States and the European Parliament, we have reformed the Common Agriculture Policy (CAP).

This reform reflects choices already made to encourage farmers to produce what consumers want and not what public authorities decide" said Dacian Ciolo European Commissioner for Agriculture and Rural Development during the opening Ceremony of the International Green Week held in Berlin on the 16 January 2014. "At the same time, we wanted to encourage farmers to take into account not only our choices as consumers healthy, safe, quality and affordable products but also our choices as citizens, with concerns for the environment and our future" he added.
