Policy & Strategies

The Agri-food sector is highly regulated through international and national legislation and policies which frame and constrain the business. For companies active in the sector, strategic planning therefore needs to take into consideration two main areas of regulation:

  • Economic support
  • Consumer, food safety and veterinary controls

Though there has been a shift in the EU from product-related to producer-related payments, major policy decisions such as the end of EU milk quotas in 2015 and the EU Financial Perspectives 2014-2020 will have considerable implications for agriculture in general and specifically for agri-food businesses.
While there is a general tendency for less economic support for agriculture in the future, regulation of consumer protection and food safety are topics in which all governments throughout the world are showing an increasing interest.

Agrifood Business Partners can help with the development of strategies in the light of changes and likely future developments in these policy frameworks.
