What if insects were on the menu in Europe?

03-07-2020

Insects, while commonly consumed elsewhere in the world, have long been off the menu in Europe – but they could soon be creeping their way onto our plates. Entomophagy, the practice of eating insects, is now gaining serious interest – is it set to take Europe by swarm?

Perspectives démographiques pour l’Union européenne 2020

02-03-2020

La démographie est un sujet crucial. L’économie et le marché du travail, mais aussi la protection sociale, l’équité entre les générations, les soins de santé, l’environnement, l’alimentation et la nutrition sont tous liés à la démographie. L’Union européenne a vu sa population augmenter de manière substantielle, à savoir d’environ 25 % depuis 1960, et elle compte actuellement près de 450 millions d’habitants. Toutefois, ces chiffres commencent à présent à stagner et devraient diminuer à partir du ...

La démographie est un sujet crucial. L’économie et le marché du travail, mais aussi la protection sociale, l’équité entre les générations, les soins de santé, l’environnement, l’alimentation et la nutrition sont tous liés à la démographie. L’Union européenne a vu sa population augmenter de manière substantielle, à savoir d’environ 25 % depuis 1960, et elle compte actuellement près de 450 millions d’habitants. Toutefois, ces chiffres commencent à présent à stagner et devraient diminuer à partir du milieu du siècle environ. La population de l’Union européenne représente une part décroissante de la population mondiale, qui a augmenté plus encore et qui continue de croître. Par ailleurs, la population de l’Union vieillit de manière spectaculaire, à mesure que l’espérance de vie augmente et que les taux de fécondité descendent au-dessous des niveaux antérieurs. Cela a des conséquences graves sur toute une série de domaines, y compris l’économie, les soins de santé et les retraites. La libre circulation au sein de l’Union européenne et l’immigration en provenance de pays tiers jouent également un rôle important dans la composition de la population des différents États membres et régions. La section centrale de la présente édition des perspectives démographiques se penche sur les enjeux démographiques liés à l’alimentation et à la nutrition. Elle met en lumière le fait que, même si une alimentation de meilleure qualité et des habitudes alimentaires plus saines contribuent à augmenter l’espérance de vie, l’Union européenne doit encore s’attaquer aux conséquences néfastes des maladies chroniques liées à l’alimentation, telles que l’obésité, le diabète et les maladies cardiovasculaires, et prévenir leurs causes. Le présent document est le troisième d’une série produite par l’EPRS sur les perspectives démographiques de l’Union européenne.

Megatrends in the agri-food sector: global overview and possible policy response from an EU perspective

This paper summarises the presentations and discussions of the Workshop ‘Eat for Health’ held at the European Parliament in Brussels on 13 October 2015. The aim of the workshop was to discuss the eating habits and trends in Europe as well as the options for policy makers, industry, professionals and citizens to promote a healthier diet. The importance of a healthy diet was underlined with scientific findings that observed an association between nutrition and many diseases, particularly obesity and diabetes. It was agreed that a variety of foods and foods rich in high quality nutrients constitute a healthy diet. Activities of the EU Platform and High Level Group on Diet, Physical Activity and Health show that Member States are willing to tackle the issue. The issues around labelling, reformulation and stricter marketing rules regarding food were discussed. These actions should result in giving consumers complete and correct information about food and beverage properties. Challenges remain and more efforts should be made to create a healthy environment and stimulate healthy diets among Europeans. This workshop and the respective document were prepared by the Policy Department A at the request of the Committee on Environment, Public Health and Food Safety.

Can processed and red meat cause cancer? The World Health Organization's classification raises concerns

30-10-2015

On 26 October 2015, the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), which is part of the World Health Organization (WHO), announced that it has classified processed meat as 'carcinogenic to humans', and red meat as 'probably carcinogenic to humans'. Stakeholder responses have varied from putting things into perspective, to criticising the decision, to cautioning against alarmist reactions.

Nouveau programme en faveur de la consommation de fruits et de lait dans les établissements scolaires

22-05-2015

Le 27 mai 2015, les députés seront invités à voter en plénière un rapport élaboré par la commission de l'agriculture et du développement rural (AGRI), visant à modifier la proposition législative de la Commission européenne instituant un nouveau programme unique en faveur de la consommation de fruits et de lait dans les établissements scolaires.

Cette proposition entend fusionner deux régimes distincts en vigueur, l'un portant sur la distribution de lait et l'autre sur la distribution de fruits et de légumes dans les écoles. L'adoption de ce projet demeure toutefois incertaine dans la mesure où la Commission a décidé de le suspendre en attendant de connaître les conclusions d'une évaluation des régimes initiaux. Le projet de règlement fait également l'objet d'un désaccord sur la base juridique entre, d'une part, le Conseil et, de l'autre, la Commission et le Parlement.

Review of the school distribution programmes in the area of agriculture: Initial Appraisal of a European Commission Impact Assessment

09-01-2015

This note seeks to provide an initial analysis of the strengths and weaknesses of the European Commission's Impact Assessment (IA) accompanying the proposal on the aid scheme for the supply of fruit and vegetables, bananas and milk in the educational establishments. Overall, the IA appears to be well documented and researched. However, potential downsides to the various options could have been more fully examined and stakeholder positions and concerns more adequately presented and taken into consideration ...

This note seeks to provide an initial analysis of the strengths and weaknesses of the European Commission's Impact Assessment (IA) accompanying the proposal on the aid scheme for the supply of fruit and vegetables, bananas and milk in the educational establishments. Overall, the IA appears to be well documented and researched. However, potential downsides to the various options could have been more fully examined and stakeholder positions and concerns more adequately presented and taken into consideration. More generally, the conclusion that there is a necessity to act now, before the changes brought by the CAP 2020 agreement are implemented and evaluated, would have benefited from further explanation and evidence. This note, prepared by the Ex-Ante Impact Assessment Unit for the Committee on Agriculture of the European Parliament, analyses whether the principal criteria laid down in the Commission’s own Impact Assessment Guidelines, as well as additional factors identified by the Parliament in its Impact Assessment Handbook, appear to be met by the IA.
