Commission Urged not to Lower its Pesticides Reduction Ambition

Slow Food Europe, along with other European civil society organizations, asks the European Commission not to compromise the public health and the European Green Deal. In the joint letter, addressed to the Commissioner for Health and Food Safety Stella Kyriakides, organizations draw attention to the current debate about whether to loosen the rules of residues of certain pesticides on imported products. The organizations believe that such a compromise would go against the Commission’s ambitions to reduce the EU’s dependency on pesticides.
