Joint Statement: Stimulating fresh fruit and vegetable consumption for healthier European consumers

26 March, 2019

In 2018, EuroHealthNet participated in a Thematic Network, led by Freshfel Europe as part of the EU Health Policy Platform. The Thematic Network is entitled “Stimulating fresh fruit and vegetable consumption for healthier European consumers”. The objective of the Thematic Network was to develop a Joint Statement consolidating good practices of communicating fruit and vegetable consumption needs and of how to encourage fruit and vegetable consumption in a changing lifestyle environment in Europe.

The Joint Statement was in collaboration with key health and agri-food related stakeholders throughout 2018, including Appic Sante, BEUC, Bord Bia, ECDA, EFAD, EFCAM, EHN, EPHA, EuroCommerce and EuroCoop. This Joint Statement is therefore a common position of these stakeholders and represents a joint call to action for continued and improved work on stimulating fresh fruit and vegetable consumption throughout Europe to prevent the onset of non-communicable diseases.

This Joint Statement comprises of a set of two papers. The first paper frames and contextualises the current situation of fresh fruit and vegetable consumption in Europe and the second paper provides recommendations for future action.
