Subject of contract
Deliver a study on “Farm certification schemes for sustainable agriculture - state of play and overview in the EU and key global producing countries, concepts & methods”
Some of the key challenges facing EU agriculture include improving the response to society’s demands on food and health, including safe, nutritious and sustainable food. Together with increased competition from major world food producers, these consumers’ demands explain why European agriculture has made an important shift, emphasising quality and specialisation to better promote its production and processing techniques, ingredients, and origin of raw materials. As consumers, retailers and farmers rely increasingly on logos and quality schemes to help them identify and distinguish food produce, a wide range of certification schemes, including successful schemes for geographical indications and traditional specialities, currently operate in Europe and their number continues to increase. Against this background, this research project will provide input to the AGRI Committee Members on the concepts and methods beyond these schemes and how they can promote sustainable farming, notably through the CAP instruments.

This study of around 80 pages (maximum) shall be delivered to the European Parliament's Agricultural Committee (COMAGRI) in March 2022.

The selected experts/research body/consortium shall have a relevant educational and professional background in agriculture, certification schemes and CAP instruments.
