Total EU protein crop production (dried pulses, soybeans etc) currently occupies only 3% of the Union's arable land and supplies only 30% of the protein crops consumed as animal feed in the EU, with a trend over the past decade towards an increase in this deficit.

• Total EU protein crop production (dried pulses, soybeans etc) currently occupies only 3% of the Union's arable land
• Supplies only 30% of the protein crops consumed as animal feed in the EU

In this context, Members call on the Commission to
• take a medium - to long-term view in reviewing its policy on proteins
• submit a report on the possibilities and options for increasing domestic protein crop production in the EU by means of new policy instruments
• establish a monitoring mechanism on the origin of protein crops imported into the EU
