On 29 October, Commissioner for Health and Food Safety, Stella Kyriakides, will be in Nicosia, Cyprus, where she will meet with the Minister of Agriculture, Rural
Development and the Environment, Costas Kadis

Discussions will focus on the Farm to Fork Strategy, and the state of play of its implementation in Cyprus with regard to the use of pesticides, animal welfare, antimicrobial resistance, and
the latest developments relating to Halloumi/Hellim.

The meeting will be followed by a meeting with the Cyprus Chamber of Commerce, a visit of the Riverland bio farm and a dog care shelter in Kokkinotrimithia. Ahead of the visit, Commissioner
Kyriakides said: The Farm to Fork Strategy is our transformative vision on the way food is produced and consumed in the EU. The way we produce, distribute and consume food
needs to change. Our health is a continuum, across the human, animal, plant and planetary dimensions. I am looking forward to discussing how the EU can further support Cyprus’ shift to a
food system which is fairer, greener and more sustainable for everyone.

These actions are part of the Commission’s on-going efforts and Commissioner Kyriakides‘s commitment to support the implementation of the Farm to Fork
across the Member States
