A joint appeal has been made to European Commissioner for Agriculture and Rural Development, Phil Hogan, by the European Heart Network (EHN), Freshfel Europe and the European Public Health Alliance (EPHA) seeking mechanisms and funding to ensure the EU Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) will support healthy sustainable diets by increasing its focus on vegetables and fruit. The representatives of Europe’s fresh produce industry, NGOs, foundations and groups working to protect public health state that a well-designed CAP can enable the EU to meet its citizens’ needs and achieve a triple win for economy, environment and health.

“The EU can only go forward with a CAP that has healthy sustainable diets as a prominent objective.”
