Webquest "From farm to fork"


This webquest is designed to educate students about the importance of the "From farm to fork" strategy.

It's important because this strategy is at the heart of the European Green Deal and it's aimed to make food systems fair, healty and environmentally-friendly. 

The farm to fork strategy aims also to accelerate our transition to a sustainable food system that should:

  • have a positive or a neutral environmental impact;
  • help to mitigate climate change and adapt to its impact;
  • reverse the loss of biodiversity;
  • ensure food security, nutrion and public health, making sure that everyone has access to sufficient, safe, nutritious, sustainable food;
  • preserve affordability of food while generating fairer economic returns, fostering competitiveness of the EU supply sector and promoting fair trade.

The EU’s goals are to reduce the environmental and climate footprint of the EU food system and strengthen 
its resilience, ensure food security in the face of climate change and biodiversity loss and lead a global 
transition towards competitive sustainability from farm to fork and tapping into new opportunities. This 
• ensuring that the food chain, covering food production, transport, distribution, marketing 
and consumption, has a neutral or positive environmental impact, preserving and restoring the 
land, freshwater and sea-based resources on which the food system depends; helping to mitigate climate 
change and adapting to its impacts; protecting land, soil, water, air, plant and animal health and welfare; 
and reversing the loss of biodiversity; 
• ensuring food security, nutrition and public health – making sure that everyone has access to sufficient, 
nutritious, sustainable food that upholds high standards of safety and quality, plant health, and 
animal health and welfare, while meeting dietary needs and food preferences; and 
• preserving the affordability of food, while generating fairer economic returns in the supply chain, so 
that ultimately the most sustainable food also becomes the most affordable, fostering the 
competitiveness of the EU supply sector, promoting fair trade, creating new business opportunities, while 
ensuring integrity of the single market and occupational health and safety.
