Agriculture Our vision is of farming which respects the world’s finite resources and is fair to farmers and consumers

Reacting to Bayer's decision to drop the Monsanto name as part of its near-complete takeover of the agribusiness giant, Adrian Bebb, food and farming campaigner at Friends of the Earth Europe said:

"Bayer will become Monsanto in all but name unless it takes drastic measures to distance itself from the US chemical giant's controversial past. If it continues to peddle dangerous pesticides and unwanted GMOs then it will quickly find itself dealing with the same global resistance that Monsanto did."

The food and farming system in the EU is the result of different policies coming together over many decades. I now includes policies and laws connected to agriculture, food production, trade, food safety, seeds, environment, climate, nature protection, health, rural development, workers' rights and many more.

Europe's current model of farming and food consumption is destroying the environment and hurting people. Industrial agriculture damages water supplies, wildlife and rural communities, and its impacts are felt heavily in developing countries.

 

Friends of the Earth Europe campaigns to stop the expansion of industrial agriculture with all its negative environmental and social impacts. We promote farming and food which respects the world's finite natural resources and is fair to farmers and consumers.
