Veg-i-Trade launches survey on fresh produce food safety & quality standards in the context of food sovereignty.

Food safety & quality standards and legislation play a key role for assuring food safety and quality in the global fresh produce supply chain. These food safety & quality standards and legislation have various implications on the functioning and organization of the fresh produce supply chain and their stakeholders, in particular for farmers.

One of the objectives of the EU FP7 project Veg-i-Trade, is to organize discussion forums on particular aspects of food sovereignty related to the global fresh produce supply chain. The outcome of the present survey will serve as one of the input elements for the round table discussions that will be organized in 2014.
