The #AnnualFoodAgenda

The #AnnualFoodAgenda

The #AnnualFoodAgenda encourages consumers to think about the food they eat, increasing their knowledge of the entire value chain, and linking healthy diets to an active and healthy lifestyle, as well as to a healthier planet.

It encompasses a series of interactive events, which provide a space to explore food topics with large numbers of people across Europe. Events taking place include interactive exhibitions, scientific cafes and hands-on activities, and are designed to inspire debate and to foster dialogue between experts and consumers.
