Transformation scenarios for boosting

organic farming and aquaculture towards the Farm-to-Fork targets

OrganicTargets4EU supports the Farm-to-Fork Strategy in achieving the targets of at least 25% of the EU's agricultural land under organic farming and significantly increasing organic aquaculture by 2030. To achieve these ambitious goals, 18 partners spearheaded by IFOAM Organics Europe will set up a multi-actor process to create possible scenarios for reaching these targets and provide in-depth knowledge of the key drivers and lock-ins affecting the organic sector's development.

OrganicTargets4EU is structured in two strands

Production & Markets

The Farm-to-Fork strategy is expected to create shifts in farm and value chain structures. OrganicTargets4EU will provide evidence on the mechanisms that can drive demand for organic food and identify possible positive and negative socio-economic impacts on operators along the entire value chain. The project will analyse where increases in organic farmland can be achieved and the (socio-economic) impacts of these increases at the primary production level, value chains, and markets.

Knowledge & Innovation

It is estimated that 780,000 new businesses will need access to organic information. OrganicTargets4EU recognises that such scale of the expansion will require a transformational approach to knowledge and innovation systems for organic agriculture and aquaculture. To this end, the project will identify knowledge gaps and opportunities to strengthen advisory services, build capacity, and stimulate the exchange of scientific and practice-oriented knowledge. In addition, building on the CORE Organic network of funding bodies will increase and coordinate R&I investment for organic.

OrganicTargets4EU will facilitate a multi-actor policy dialogue to assess the feasibility of reaching the organic Farm-to-Fork targets and support the implementation of the Common Agricultural Policy, EU organic regulation, and Organic Action Plan and other relevant policies to deliver these targets. The project will provide short-term policy options within existing policy frameworks (up to 2027) and opportunities for policy developments in the next policy reform from 2028 onwards.
