Question for written answer E-004136/2019
to the Commission
Rule 138
Monika Beňová (S&D)
 Answer in writing 
 Subject: Food production curve

In the light of the following:

1. rising population growth; the strain on agricultural production brought about by climate change, and the gradual depletion of soil efficiency;

2. current plans to usher in a sustainable transformation in order to achieve a carbon neutral economy by 2050;

It appears inevitable, as production methods become more expensive and output falls, that food prices will start to increase. Demand, however, is still expected to rise.

Has the Commission prepared a strategy to offset an initial spike in food prices?

Would it agree with the scenario outlined above?
