About the initiative and the report

The agriculture sector and the food industry are changing as they need to respond to environment, human health and world sustainability challenges.

This major change is progressively having an impact on jobs and skills as we currently know them, and does raise many questions for the current and future role of trade unions and workers’ representatives in the food industry and the agriculture sector.

With financial support from the EU Commission, EFFAT food and drink, and agriculture sectors have worked with consultants, Areté Research & Consulting in Economics, to allow food and agriculture trade unions to have the necessary tools to contribute to EU policy making, in particular in the field of the greening of the economy, job creation and job matching, quality of work, skills and decent work.
