Freshfel has created an updated position paper on the organic farming dossier. It has been deemed necessary to develop an updated position paper given the ongoing trialogue discussions. The attached position paper is based on the position that was already developed in November 2014, but focusses more specifically on the topics of main interest during the trialogue discussions. The main topics included are therefore covering: the scope, objectives and principles (mix farm holdings, seeds, and growing practices), import system, substances and MRLs and smaller paragraphs on official controls, fraud control, environmental performance and future steps.
