As part of our #EU40Talks, this session will tackle innovation in the food chain. There is a lot of talk about innovation being the key to the sustainable transition delivered by Farm2Fork strategy. #EUFarm2Fork has huge expectations from the food chain but is it delivering on its promises to adequately support the food chain?
Is 'innovation' just a buzzword or are there real mechanism and legislative vehicles to concretely support innovation in the food chain? Is the food chain innovative enough? Is it ready for the change? What innovation is taking place already in the food chain and what else has to be done in order for innovation to reach the market?
