CO-FRESH: Co-creating the future of agrifood value chains

14 March 2024
European Economic and Social Committee (EESC), Brussels, Belgium

The CO-FRESH project is organising its final conference on 14 March 2024 in Brussels, Belgium. The event will present key innovations and concrete conclusions based on 3.5 years of work analysing seven value chains that were studied as pilot cases. These conclusions will be presented as recommendations to (re)design and pilot innovative systemic approaches to agri-food value chains that can be scaled up at the European level. The lessons learned will also include failures – i.e. what does not work so that it is not repeated. The event will also be attended by the project officer and colleagues from the European Commission’s Directorate-General for Agriculture and Rural Development (DG AGRI).

As such, the event’s aim relates to EU sustainability policy and particularly the European Economic and Social Committee’s (EESC) commitment and work dedicated to the objective of achieving a just and green transition. Therefore, we see a clear link to the EESC NAT Section and particularly the Permanent Group on Sustainable Food Systems, with which Euro Coop has collaborated extensively in recent years.
