Since 2010, the High Level Forum for a better functioning food supply chain served a strategic mission: improving the functioning of this chain and thus the competitiveness of the agri-food sector as key segment of the Union economy.
The Forum adopted its final report which describes the work conducted in the second biennium 2013-2014 and reflects the outcome of the deliberations of its members in the following areas: business-to-business trading practices, Internal Market for food and drink products (e.g. on food taxes), sustainability, social dialogue and food price monitoring.
The High Level Forum for a better functioning food supply chain comprises 47 members representing a number of Member States, European companies dealing with food production, processing or distribution, professional associations and non-governmental organisations representing citizens’ interests. It is chaired by Commissioner Ferdinando Nelli Feroci (Industry and Entrepreneurship) together with European Commission' Vice-President Michel Barnier (Internal Market and Services) and fellow Commissioners Dacian Cioloş (Agriculture and Rural Development) and Tonio Borg (Health and Consumers).
