Kalyana Sundram*, Uthaya Kumar

Abstract
As part of the European Green Deal initiative, on 20 May 2020, the European Commission presented the Communication on a Farm to Fork Strategy for a fair, healthy and environmentally-friendly food system (F2F Strategy), which aims at making “the entire food chain from production to consumption more sustainable and neutral in its impact on the environment”. Together with the F2F Strategy, the Commission presented the Communication on a EU Biodiversity Strategy for 2030 - Bringing nature back into our lives (Biodiversity Strategy), in which the Commission proposes a far-reaching EU Nature Restoration Plan to increase the share of protected areas to 30% of the EU’s lands and seas by 2030, including 10% under an enhanced strict protection status. This article analyses the EU’s F2F and Biodiversity Strategies and the possible implications that specific measures under both strategies are poised to have on palm oil, as well as on food products containing palm oil.
