FoodDrinkEurope position on price transparency


Over the years, the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) has become more market-oriented and the share of market support in the CAP budget has gone down. At the same time, to strengthen the position of farmers in the food chain, calls for intervention in B2B relations have increased, including calls for more market transparency. The EU institutions have launched EU Market Observatories, the initiative on price transparency and ‘Food Euro’ calculations.

With this paper, FoodDrinkEurope would like to bring scientific evidence and the experiences of operators in the food chain into the discussions on price transparency.
