Policy Market Insights and Forecasting

Shifts in agribusiness are often shaped by government policy and regulation. Keep on top of changes with timely, reliable and authoritative reporting on agricultural and food developments from key regulatory hubs in Europe and North America.

In Europe, the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) plays a major role in defining the activities of the food and farming sector and how it is financed. Providing billions in subsidies for food production and standards, the CAP is a pivotal policy that the farming industry revolves around.

Also, legislative debates in the European Parliament and European Council, along with measures taken by the European Commission, the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) and member state regulatory authorities and government departments inform the development of both European and global food policies which have a direct effect on companies operating along the entire agri-food business chain.

In the US, the Food and Drug Administration and US Department of Agriculture are the governing bodies that guide policy for the agricultural community as well as agribusiness organizations and food manufacturers.
