More focus on vegetables and fruit in the CAP can help achieve a triple-win for economy, environment and health.

The European Heart Network (EHN), Freshfel Europe and the European Public Health Alliance (EPHA) have today written to European Commissioner for Agriculture and Rural Development Phil Hogan asking for concrete mechanisms and sufficient budget to ensure the EU Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) of the future will support healthy sustainable diets, by enhancing its focus on vegetables and fruit.

In the letter, the three organisations, representing the European fresh produce industry, as well as NGOs, foundations and groups working to prevent and reduce cardiovascular diseases and give a voice to public health in Europe, affirm that through a smartly designed CAP the EU can address its citizens’ concerns and achieve a triple win for economy, environment and health.

“the EU can only go forward with a CAP that has healthy sustainable diets as a prominent objective”
