Green paper consultation on information and promotion for EU agricultural products - CLOSED

Title

Green paper on information and promotion for agricultural products 

 

Policy field

Agriculture

 

Target groups

All organizations and citizens interested in information and promotion of agricultural products were welcome to contribute to this public consultation. Contributions were particularly sought from Member States, professional organisations, farmers, food producers, non-governmental organizations, processors, retailers, distributors, traders, consumers and government agencies. 

 

Period of consultation

14/07/2011 to 07/10/2011

 

Objective of the consultation

The current policy for information and promotion for agricultural products has achieved good results but the Commission is convinced that the policy could be simplified and improved to better address the needs of the European and the world markets.

Before proposing regulatory solutions, the Commission wanted to ask stakeholders to give their views.

A revised policy on promotion should help to make the assets of European agriculture better known within the internal and external markets, as well as to bring the taste of Europe across the world.
