Don't Mess with my Plate
We are what we eat!
We are all concerned about what's in our fields, on our plates and in our shops. European farmers, fishermen, consumers and retailers are uniting to defend basic principles of good food.
All of us play an important part in sorting out the mess our current food system is in and regaining control over what we eat.
I want my food to be:
Free from GMOs, free from pesticides, free from antibiotics, free from patents. I want my food to be safe and produced in a natural way.
2. DIVERSE, HEALTHY AND TASTY
A healthy diet includes lots of fresh fruit and vegetables, while ready-made food often contains too much sugar, fat and additives. I want to taste the whole range of flavours that exist and support biodiversity.
3. SEASONAL AND LOCAL
I think globally so I eat locally.
I want fresh seasonal food, I want short food chains, I support local producers, I want to know where my food comes from.
4. FAIR AND SUSTAINABLE
I want producers to be paid a fair price for quality food. I support the fair trade of food and its distribution. I want environmental standards to be raised. Overexploitation destroys land, oceans and local communities.
5. ANIMAL FRIENDLY
I want animals to be treated respectfully and welfare standards to be strengthened.
I want my food to be affordable, I want transparent food labelling telling how food is grown and produced; Too much low quality-food is produced with devastating social, health and environmental impacts.
7. NOT WASTEFUL
I want an end to the scandal of systemic food waste. Up to 50% of the food we produce is wasted while millions go hungry. I support short food chains and local initiatives to stop hunger and avoid food waste.
