PAN Europe letter on the presence of neonicotinoids in children's cerebrospinal fluids
Dear Commissioner Kyriakides,
First of all, we wished to thank you for moving forward with the ban on Sulfoxaflor. We consider the environment will be safer for insects without this chemical.
Publication of the revision of the legislation on the sustainable use of pesticides, on 23 March 2022.
Dear President von der Leyen, Executive Vice-President Timmermans, dear Commissioners Kyriakides, Wojciechowski and Sinkevičius,
Over the last weeks, we have witnessed numerous public interventions with alarming messages according to which the EU’s “food security” is in danger because of the war in Ukraine. We are aware that international solidarity is and will be needed, but the situation in the EU with regard to “food security” and “food sovereignty” is different to the messages we have heard these last weeks.
Shameless instrumentalization of the Ukraine conflict by trade associations to waive EU food and feed safety standards
Dear Vice-President Timmermans, dear Commissioners Kyriakides and Wojciechowski,
We are writing to you in reaction to the attempt of severable trade associations to take advantage of the terrible Ukrainian war to challenge the existing EU food and feed safety standards.
