It looks at: Unearthed, Greenpeace UK's investigative team, also published research on the attack on the European Green Deal. These groups serve to provide DG Agriculture with advice on new policy and legislation, including on the CAP.

Dutch Copa-member Land- en Tuinbouworganisatie (LTO) and the French FNSEA also weighed in against the Farm to Fork measures. Not in Cogeca, which has a very pro-market liberalization stance, driving down the price farmers get for their products.” He also noted a strong ideological overlap between the dominant departments of the European Commission and Copa-Cogeca, with a shared focus on international competitiveness and growth. This has not happened.

In the view of Henri Lecloux, the large-scale cereal farmers have been a dominant force in Copa, and they have been pushing for a pro-liberalisation and free trade agenda within the organisation. However, no specific actions with timetable are listed in the F2F Draft Action Plan. The F2F Strategy comes under the Executive Vice-President of the EU Green Deal, Frans Timmermans. [5]     At the Agrifish Council on 27 January 2020, the German delegation called for the creation of a transparent and harmonised EU-wide animal welfare label, arguing that this will “significantly increase consumer confidence in the labelling of animal products”.

A report by the European Parliament’s Budgetary Control Committee, from April 2020, said that Babiš should not negotiate on the EU’s next seven-year budget, and should resign as Prime Minister or sell his business if the conflict of interest was confirmed.

Despite strongly diverging interests internally, Copa-Cogeca’s members have to come to unified positions on key topics, and this means there are winners and losers. He ignored the beneficial impact such a cut would have on the environment. We need to redesign our food systems which today account for nearly one-third of global GHG emissions, consume large amounts of natural resources, result in biodiversity loss and negative health impacts (due to both under- and over-nutrition) and do not allow fair economic returns and livelihoods for all actors, in particular for primary producers. In a bilateral meeting with DG Agriculture in February 2018, Copa-Cogeca “expressed concerns about capping”.

The common agricultural policy. Furthermore, the main difference with previous horizontal legislative packages affecting the CAP is that the European Green Deal and the F2F Strategy become permanent frameworks and threaten the decision-making powers of the AGRI Commissioner.

Furthermore, all of these targets directly concern farming practices: The main Commission’s initiatives affecting intensive farming (under the responsibility of DG HEALTH) (BOX 3) are the following: Furthermore, livestock farming is one of the most concerned sector by the F2F Strategy provisions from different angles (environmental, public health, and/or animal welfare). The Communication highlights the environmental and climate impacts of current levels of consumption and production of meat, dairy and eggs, the need to shift from an animal-based to a plant-based diet in order to reduce risk of life-threatening diseases such as cancer, the evidence that the excessive use of antibiotics for farmed animals increase the antimicrobial resistance, and, last but not least, the respect of animal welfare. The EMB’s Van Keimpema says that “our farmers want to produce more sustainably, but there is no guarantee how they will be compensated for these new measures. This section will summarise this document complementing the descriptive analysis of Action 3 of the F2F Draft Action Plan (see above §2.3.2). Apart from this, some of its members also have their own offices in Brussels, as with the French FNSEA; or they have a secretary working from Copa-Cogeca’s offices. It is therefore paradoxical that all these new agricultural measures should be integrated by the new CAP post 2020 with the intention of its being successful. Replying to this parliamentary request, on 20 May, the Commission published, on the same day as the F2F Strategy presentation, a Staff Working document analysing the links between the CAP Reform and the European Green Deal (including its associated strategies such as the Farm to Fork Strategy) (SWD(2020) 93). 2. – A new decision-making level on the CAP reform process. Indeed, a preparatory paper for a meeting with a lobby group of big farmers from Romania written by DG Agriculture officials put forward the argument that the exemption of labour costs “recognizes the important role of larger farms in rural employment, and considerably mitigates the potential effect of reduction of subsidies on these farms”. Food systems cannot be resilient to crises such as the Covid-19 pandemic if they are not sustainable. Indeed, why would farmers still pay their membership fee, if their organisations in Brussels do not defend their interests? MEPs called for an increase in the EU’s greenhouse gas emissions reduction target for 2030 to 55% compared to 1990 levels (instead of ‘at least 50% towards 55%’, as proposed by the European Commission) (Point 13). To increase impact, this letter was followed by similar messages coordinated with Copa members, such as the Dutch LTO. France receives the highest amount of CAP subsidies in the EU, and its government considers the CAP a strategic national priority in EU budget negotiations. ECPA also said it would soon “show how much the industry is investing and will invest in bio-pesticides and digital agriculture to help farmers use less chemical pesticides”. In this meeting, Timmermans pointed out how the CAP had both failed to ensure a good income for all farmers, and to achieve green goals.

Copa-Cogeca’s capture of EU Agricultural Policy: “a matter of tradition”!

Then you won’t need subsidies.". As it is described in Action 3 of the Draft Action Plan (see above §2.3.2), this approach confirms the ‘instrumental’ role of CAP Strategic Plans to deliver on Europe’s objective to become the first climate-neutral continent in the world by 2050 and to build a fair, healthy and environmentally-friendly EU agri-food chain.

However, the F2F Strategy will be getting underway just as reform of the CAP is being brought towards a conclusion. The agri-cooperatives were originally farmer-owned processing and trading companies, as well as financial services providers. Copa-Cogeca alone occupied a stunning 442 out of the total 943 seats. Many are facing precarious situations and are locked into farmers unions that do not support the transition to a new food system that the current climate, ecosystem, and biodiversity crises urgently requires.
