With the occasion of the 5th steering committee of the ACP Fish II programme, CTA Brussels met with Gustavo Miranda to discuss the main objectives, the current situation, and the main challenges ahead for the programme.

For the past decade, consumption of organic products in central and northern Europe has grown substantially, motivating producers to convert their crops and acquire organic certifications.
