The High Level Forum for a Better Functioning Food Supply Chain met for the first time on 16 November 2010 in Brussels. It adopted a work plan to boost competitiveness and to promote best contractual practices in the European food sector, extending the work of the previous High Level Group on the Competitiveness of the Agro-Food Industry to the whole supply chain. Antonio Tajani, Vice-President of the EC in charge of Industry and Entrepreneurship, lead this exercise together with Dacian Cioloş, Member of the EC in charge of Agriculture and Rural Development, John Dalli, Member of the EC in charge of Health and Consumer Policy, and Michel Barnier, Member of the EC in charge of Internal Market and Services. The Forum comprises of 45 members representing mainly selected Member States, European companies dealing with food production, processing or distribution, as well as professional associations and non-governmental organisation representing citizens’ interests. The mandate of the Forum is two-fold. On the one hand, it will have to follow the recommendations of the High Level Group on the Competitiveness of the Agro-Food Industry. On the other hand, it will ensure that the initiatives proposed by the European Commission in its Communication "A better functioning food supply chain in Europe" (COM (2009) 591) are implemented on the basis of on-going discussions with relevant stakeholders. The Forum has a two-year mandate ending 31 December 2012. The Forum will be meeting once a year and is expected to approve its final report by 2012.
