Agrifood Atlas. How corporations are tightening their stranglehold on people’s food
Friends of the Earth Europe, Heinrich Böll Foundation and the Rosa-Luxemburg-Stiftung invite you to a press breakfast to launch the international "Agrifood Atlas".
The new report – a comprehensive summary of facts and figures – reveals that the current consolidations in the food and farming sectors are creating huge monopolies driving devastating impacts along the entire global value chain, from farm to plate.
The launch comes as the European Commission faces a crunch decision on whether to authorise the potential Bayer-Monsanto mega-merger, and after Agriculture Commissioner Phil Hogan’s surprise announcement to rein in supermarkets' outsize buying power.
- Olivier de Schutter, former UN special rapporteur on the right to food, and co-chair of the International Panel of Experts on Sustainable Food Systems
