Public Consultation Open: Have Your Voice Heard!


COLEAD and the Freshfel Environmental Footprint Initiative invite you to participate in the public consultation for the newly developed shadow Product Environmental Footprint Category Rules (PEFCR) for fruits and vegetables. This initiative aims to standardize a cutting-edge environmental footprint methodology for the fresh produce sector.

We’re calling on all stakeholders, especially those with expertise in fruits and vegetables, to submit feedback by April 30, 2024. Your insights are crucial to ensuring that the shadow PEFCR truly reflects the needs and challenges of our sector.

Consultation documents are available for download on Freshfel’s website.

Additionally, COLEAD is engaged in the Steering and Technical Committee through its Fit For Market+ programs, advocating for the ACP private sector’s interests in developments this methodology that could further be applied to fresh produces imported in Europe.
