The FOOD programme was awarded a Best practice Certificate by the European Commission

On 19 June, the FOOD programme Consortium was awarded a certificate by Commissioner Tibor Navracsics (Education, Culture, Youth and Sport), Commissioner Vytenis Andriukaitis (Health and Food Safety) and Director General Jerzy Bogdan Plewa (for Commissioner Phil Hogan, Agricultural and Rural Development) for its contribution towards promoting Healthy Lifestyles.

The FOOD programme was assessed by the EU Commission and emerged as a best practice. We thus had the opportunity to present our initiatives to Member States representatives during a marketplace workshop. Participants were able to meet together, break into small working groups and to take part in ‘speed dating’ sessions to rapidly match project owners and those with interest in implementing them in their own countries. You can find best practices related to various health topics on the EU Commission Best Practice Portal.

As Commissioner Hogan said: “The progress made is a strong signal to show that working together can bring great results. From balanced diets to regular physical activity, more needs to be done but I am confident that we are on the right track.

A sincere thank you to all our partners for their continuous involvement in the programme for the past 10 years, for their great achievements and successes.

Congratulations, and let’s carry on together!
