EU Code of Conduct on Responsible Food Business and Marketing Practices launched

On 5 July 2021, the European Commission officially launched the EU Code of Conduct on Responsible Food Business and Marketing Practices as part of the EU Farm to Fork Strategy.

The Code aims at increasing the availability and affordability of healthy and sustainable food options to help reduce our environmental footprint.

EU associations and companies – as well as international organizations, NGOs, trade unions and trade associations – participated in the discussions and contributed to this initiative with their input and expertise. HOTREC also joined in the preparatory phase and regularly provided feedback to the Commission and EU stakeholders.

Associations and companies in the food sector that sign the code will commit to accelerating their contribution to a sustainable transition.

So far, the scheme includes to levels of commitment:

  • EU associations have to put forward objectives – together with related targets and indicative actions towards healthier and more sustainable consumptions.
  • On the other hand, companies must provide a framework for ambitious sustainability-related commitments and report their progress annually by submitting a summary of their sustainability report.
