Question for written answer E-006472-17
to the Commission
Rule 130
Doru-Claudian Frunzulică (S&D)

 Subject:  Increasing funding for organic farming
 Answer in writing 

Recent studies have set out to assess the direct human health benefits of organic food, which is believed to reduce the risk of allergic diseases and obesity and help consumers develop healthier eating habits.

Organic farming is known to enrich soils, boost crop yield and create jobs, and boasts considerable potential to mitigate greenhouse gas emissions and reduce soil and water contamination.

Given the above, is the Commission considering increasing funding for investment in organic food manufacturing and retailing?
