The article deals with the need for the European Union to promote cooperative organisations that will strengthen agricultural sectors in Europe. French delegates presented a memorandum to the European Farm Council asking it to encourage a responsible organisation of agri-food sectors in the interests of farmers and consumers. The memo calls for a reorganisation of agricultural sectors, including establishing producer and inter-branch organisations, to improve supply chains and enable an efficient market operation for food products.
