According to the latest Eurobarometer on agriculture and the CAP, nearly half of Europeans think that securing a stable supply of food in the EU at all times should be a main objective of the CAP, which represents an increase of six percentage points since 2020.
This view developed in 22 EU countries and increased by at least ten percentage points in six countries (Finland, Lithuania, Sweden, Greece, Spain and Italy). In addition, more than half of respondents add that the CAP should also contribute to ensuring reasonable food prices for consumers. Providing safe, healthy, and sustainable food of high quality remains the CAP's core mission according to six in ten Europeans. This view has remained stable over a period of several years. In addition, the Eurobarometer highlights the public perception that climate change is now affecting agricultural activity more and more.
