Opening Statement on Organic Farming to the Oireachtas Committee on Agriculture Food and the Marine
The Teagasc vision for organic farming is driven by an increasing market for organic food and by EU and national policy. At EU level, The Farm to Fork Strategy is at the heart of the European Green Deal that aims to make food systems sustainable, equitable, and healthy. Organic farming has a key role to play in the delivery of this vision. The target of 25% of all EU land to be farmed organically by 2030 is ambitious and sets out a ‘horizon point’ for Ireland.
