Public awareness & mobilization: - Unexpectedly high outreach in high quality/influential media - Far more EU citizens informed on challenges in fruit supply chains & alternative consumption options than expected - More EU citizens activated to participate in MFF! campaign actions than expected 2. Advocacy EU / MS: Political atmosphere in European institutions has become more and more favoring a regulation of Unfair Trading Practices: • For the first time Commission Communication (Jan 2016) included provision on accessibility for non-EU producers • EP report (June 2016) callc for legislation, support for non-EU producers access to redress system • Agri Market Task Force report (Nov 2016) calls for sensible framework legislation at EU level; calls for transparency • Council Conclusions (Dec 2016 states that “[voluntary initiatives] could be complemented, inter alia, by a regulatory approach at EU level” 3. Advocacy corporate actors: Lidl Campaign: Still a long way to go in respect to LIDL’s general practices but LIDL joining the World Banana Forum is key for improvements. The concrete impact of MFF! campaign at two big Lidl supplier plantations in Ecuador and Costa Rica are very important for the workers who are employed there.
