In February 2022, COFALEC signed the EU Code of Conduct on Responsible Food Business and Marketing Practices, one of the first deliverables of the Farm to Fork Strategy.
Through this signature, COFALEC commits to promote proactively this EU code among its members as well as to achieve two actions on its own.
COFALEC first pledge relates to the aspirational objective of “achieving a neutral food chain in Europe by 2050”. COFALEC is fully engaged to accompany and raise the awareness of its members to reduce their carbon footprint by evaluating the global greenhouse gas emission of the yeast sector for each site and at the EU level (scope 1, 2 & 3) and by building a common tool to allow the sector to measure and monitor the evolution of these global GHG emissions over time.
As part of the aspirational objective on “Healthy, balanced and sustainable diets for all European consumers”, COFALEC is committed to promote its catalogue of solutions contributing to a healthy, balanced and sustainable diet for all European consumers (products to boost human, animal and plant health, alternatives protein sources, yeast to help reduce the agricultural sector dependency on chemical pesticides, etc,…)
