A move to a sustainable supply chain,

a win for all.

Hans Muilerman,

Henriette Christensen,

who we are what we do
Who we are & what we do
  • 32 not-for-profit members in 19 European countries
  • Bring together mainly health, environmental & consumer organizations
  • Working to replace use of hazardous pesticides with ecologically sound alternatives
  • Goal of productive + sustainable farming (IP), minimizing agrochemical inputs & adverse health & environmental impacts
  • Extended network in Brussels (Commission, Parliament, Council) where we successfully lobbied the pesticide package
the pan europe message to you is
The PAN-Europe message to you is:
  • There is still a big gap between consumer expectations on food growing/food quality and the reality in the supply chain
  • We advise you to try to bridge this gap more (we see great opportunities); a real change is needed
  • Moving to a higher level of food sustainability could even be more profitable for all in the chain

Reality (2), actual MRL’s exceeding health standards (EFSA opinion 2008)
reality 3 low doses unsafe for the unborn many scientific studies in literature
Reality (3), low doses unsafe for the unborn (many scientific studies in literature)
  • Effect 1: Developmental neurotoxicity:

Adverse effects for doses ranging from 0,05-1 ppm

(cf. residue detection limit same range)

Examples: Chlorpyriphos, Carbaryl, Diazinon, Aldicarb

  • Effect 2: Endocrine disruption:

Adverse effects for doses ranging from 0,01-1 ppm

(cf. residue detection limit same range)

Examples: Quinalphos, Trifluralin, ETU/mancozeb

  • Effect 3: Combination toxicity:

Adverse effects of ppm-range combined

Examples: group Organophosphates, group Triazines, group Endocrine Disrupting chemicals.

new rounds new opportunities
New rounds, new opportunities
  • EU decided in 2009 to a system-change in crop production to IPM (pesticide package)
  • EU-member states to implement this obligation in 2014 for every farmer through National Action Plans
  • Revision CAP-money: could it be connected to IP?
  • Global GAP discussing implementing IPM in the certification system
  • Many retailers adopt own policy on residues and supple chain management
supply chain analysis topics for improvement
Supply chain analysis; topics for improvement

Not feeling enough respected for

their achievements or not paid enough

FARMERS

Professional skills not fully used

(chain management, IP)

TRADERS

Stuck in a never ending price war

and having only limited consumer trust

RETAILERS

Having the uncomfortable feeling not

being in control of the food they are buying;

worries about risks

CONSUMERS

pan proposal
PAN proposal
  • Move to a higher level of performance on IP (Global GAP+) and residues: no price competition with standard products anymore for those retailers choosing to use this higher level of performance;
  • Chain leader (retail) to send a clear message to other chain parties: real IP-products will be rewarded;
  • Best farmers and best traders for the job identified (dedicated IP-chain)
  • Communicate better products to the consumer (and earn more)
  • Joint lobby to connect CAP-money to real IP-farmers
how we see this change happen
How we see this change happen
  • More consumer trust by more sustainable, healthy, residue-free and traceble/regional products
  • Premium products for a higher consumer price
  • Best & innovative retailers take the lead and design real IP-chains, offering IP-products
  • Reward and inspire IP-farmers (respect, pay more, CAP-money)
  • NGO’s could help convincing consumers
on technics change needed
On technics change needed:

PHASE I: IP

Step 7: use plant strenghteners

IP ladder

Example potatoes

Global GAP +

Step 4: use decision-support

Step 3: resistant varieties

Step 2: mechanical weeding

Global GAP

Step 1: wide crop rotation

PHASE II: Residue control, best by prevention

conclusion
Conclusion:
  • Change is possible: Better, healthier and more sustainable products can be put on the market
  • If we help convincing consumers choosing for real IP-products you could get a premium
  • More value for the complete supply chain (and more fun)
  • More trust from society on activities in the supply chain
  • Our CAP-campaign to connect Brussels legislation and money to a sustainable and healthy supply chain is useful for creating IP-chains
great opportunities out there but
