Farm-to-Form is a strategy that will implement a series of legislative initiatives that will improve the level of food health of the European Union. Let's see how it will be implemented in the coming years.
The importance of a regulatory intervention to ensure the healthiness of food is a very effective tool, a perfect example is the series of legislative changes that are part of the Farm-to Fork Strategy which aims to lead the transition towards a sustainable and equitable food system for EU Member States as well as increasing their level of food safety.

The legislative challenge for the European Union is considerable, but if the deadlines are met, the benefits for consumers will be manifold. In addition to the definition of a new food system, it is also important to mention the measures concerning food labeling such as the indication of origin, the nutritional profiles, nutritional and sustainable food labeling as well as date stamping.
Not to mention the proposed measures in the field of sustainability of food production such as the establishment of mandatory minimum criteria for the acquisition of sustainable food, the definition of maximum levels for some nutrients and the reformulation of processed foods.
