Welcome to the Farm to Fork 2020 Conference: 

Building sustainable food systems together

Inspiring plenary sessions, informative workshops and targeted 1:1 meetings promise knowledge gain and new business contacts.

The Farm to Fork 2020 Conference - Building sustainable food systems together, will take place virtually on 15 and 16 October 2020 (World Food Day) and is the first in what will be an annual gathering of European stakeholders interested in helping to shape the EU’s path towards sustainable food systems.  

The conference is hosted by the European Commissioner for Health & Food Safety, Ms. Stella Kyriakides, and the European Commissioner for Agriculture, Mr. Janusz Wojciechowski. The opening address of the Conference will be given by the European Commission Executive Vice-President Frans Timmermans.

Stakeholders across the food value chain, public authorities, international and civil society organisations, as well as other citizens and the interested public are invited to join the debate and contribute to the implementation of the recently adopted Farm to Fork Strategy for a fair, healthy and environmentally friendly food system. The event will also provide a forum for discussion on the challenges and opportunities linked to the transition to sustainable food systems, as well as on possible further areas of intervention.

The Farm to Fork 2020 conference will be web-streamed live for participants who did not get a chance to register. The webstreaming links are available on the European Commission’s event page. A recording will also be made available after the event, on the Farm to fork website.
