IFOAM EU input on a new EU Organic Action Plan

At the 7th European Organic Congress organised by IFOAM EU in July 2013, there was a resounding call for the need for a new Action Plan. It is likely that a proposal for a new EU Organic Action Plan will accompany the European Commission's proposal for a new Organic Regulation in early 2014. To assist in this process, IFOAM EU submitted input on the strategic direction, horizontal legislation, policy initiative and technical aspects that should be addressed.
