Food for thought - Agriculture and Fisheries Report 2016
The sixth edition of the Flemish Agriculture and Fisheries Report (LARA / VIRA) was published in 2016. As the central theme is food, the report is entitled 'Food for thought'. The report is a description of the whole Flemish food system.
We describe what the Flemish eat, what attitudes, behaviors and trends play a role and what the economic, environmental and social consequences are. We analyze the different Flemish food supply chains and indicate the importance of distribution, processing and production. To meet the challenges of the Flemish food system we conclude with a set of recommendations.
