“Organic figures 2020”: the Italian organic farming data

A great challenge for all of Europe: this is the "Farm to Fork" strategy, the heart of the new Green Deal, "green path" to achieve climate neutrality in Europe by 2050.

The conspicuous dossier presented by "Etude Spirit Insight for Agence Bio" tries to answer this question through several steps:


US demand for organic products steadily expanding
