Fairmiles Stakeholder Roundtable seeks fair transition to net zero

Fairmiles held a stakeholder roundtable meeting in London on the 15th of December to engage organisations representing fresh produce businesses, academia and the international development sector to discuss and we can ensure there is a fair transition to net zero for developing country food producers.

The roundtable meeting was hosted by the University of Exeter and follows the COP28 climate conference in Dubai.

It is estimated that airfreighted fresh produce to European markets benefits over 1.5 million livelihoods in Africa. There are growing concerns however, that carbon reduction policies which seek to minimise ‘food miles’ or airfreighted produce will create a barrier to trade which will unfairly disadvantage farmers in developing countries.
