How Brussels wants to change your cheeseburger

The European Commission aims to make eating habits across the Continent more sustainable.

The cheeseburgers of 2030 won’t be the same as they are today — or at least that’s Brussels’ plan. 

The European Commission’s recently unveiled Farm to Fork strategy aims to change eating habits across the Continent over the next decade to make the agri-food system more sustainable.

It includes a set of legislative proposals and the targets that, at least on paper, would make European food healthier, more nutritious and more plant-based — and consumer choices more conscious. 

As the name suggests, the Commission’s program will affect the whole food supply chain — from how food is grown and cultivated to the final meal on European plates. But what does it mean in practice? POLITICO looked into what the EU’s ideal burger of the future might look like, if the strategy gets implemented.
