Europatat: Virtual Commission meetings; engaging with EU policy making process

Given the international travel restrictions imposed by the COVID-19 pandemic, the European Potato Trade Association (Europatat) reports in its latest newsletter that it organised virtual meetings of the Seed potatoes Commission and of the Early potatoes, Ware potatoes and Packers Commissions on 7 and 9 December respectively.

Key topics during these meetings included Brexit and its impact on the EU-UK potato trade, and the initiatives underway via the Green Deal, Farm to Fork and Biodiversity strategies.

“Sustainability will remain on top of the agenda for Europatat members and Europatat will continue contributing towards initiatives under the EU Green Deal,” says Berta RedondoSecretary General of Europatat in the organization’s December newsletter.

In the past months, Europatat also engaged with the EU policy making process in relation with the review of the European Union’s trade policy, the EU action plan for the future of organic production and the revision of the Packaging and Packaging Waste Directive.

“This engagement with the EU policy making process shows Europatat members’ commitment to respond to the current opportunities and social demands that are reflected in the Green Deal and EU’s trade policy,” says Berta Redondo.
