This report summarises the food and drink sector’s key learnings at the current stage of the Product Environmental Footprint (PEF) process. FoodDrinkEurope has carried out a survey among its members, including those who participated in the PEF pilot tests and for those who did not.
There are 289,000 food and drink companies in Europe; 9 in 10 are Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs). They are present in every region and stand for both tradition and innovation in our industry.
FoodDrinkEurope has published its Annual Report 2017, presenting the highlights of its work over the past year.
The food and drink industry is Europe’s largest manufacturing industry, its largest employer and a major player in our economy. Yet, in the current difficult economic climate, there is no time for business as usual; the sector must therefore collectively step up its efforts, particularly in terms of trade and innovation.
