Sir,

Regarding ‘Brussels outlines vision for ‘fairer’ EU farm policy‘:

The European Commission’s Communication on the future of the Common Agricultural Policy sets separate objectives of social cohesion, economic health and environmental sustainability. Our association fully shares these objectives.

Together with the 19 participants from 14 member states and highly diverse backgrounds who attended our workshop on ‘labelling socio-economically and environmentally sustainable agriculture’, we believe that a comprehensive quality labelling system, taking into account the three inseparable dimensions of sustainability above, would be a key policy tool to achieve the objectives of the European Union regarding the future of the CAP.

More details of our public policy proposal may be found on our website: http://www.citizenseminars.eu/ExecSum/SustainableAgri_2009-03.html
