Key aims of the Farm to Fork Strategy include ensuring food security, nutrition, and public health, making sure that everyone has access to sufficient, safe, nutritious, sustainable food. Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) support is helping Member States achieve these aims and an Italian climate action project by the Società Agricola Terre Sabine shows how CAP can make this happen on the ground for the long term.

Europe’s health, climate, and conflict crises underline the importance of food security and nutrition for EU citizens. CAP can help strengthen the autonomy of supplies of healthy plant-based foods including fruit and vegetables. One of many CAP examples of this is found in Italy’s Lazio region where the nutritional, economic, and environmental value of cherry orchards has been protected by Rural Development Programme funds covering 80% of hail netting costs. Results of this good practice approach safeguard the security of healthy food supplies by adapting fruit production practices to better cope with extreme weather risks.
