Supporting farmers and protecting food security

In addition to its legislative work, the committee also monitors the implementation of the CAP and other important issues such as food security in close cooperation with the Commission and the Council along with other EU Institutions and stakeholders.

The EPP Group is fighting for a stronger EU agricultural policy with adequate funding and new sustainable and efficient methods to safeguard local food production in Europe’s family farms and support young farmers to ensure the future of European food production.

We also supported 600,000 EU beekeepers by calling for measures to stop honey adulteration and for a clear and science-based approach to manage permits for different chemicals that may affect bees’ health.
