This research article aims at providing a preliminary assessment of the impact of COVID-19 on the EU agri-food sector between March and May 2020. To this end, an analysis of the policy and legislative measures adopted during this period at EU level is first provided. Then, national experiences of nine Member States – i.e. Belgium, Germany, Greece, Italy, the Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Romania and Spain – are described in detail, illustrating, for each country, the most relevant impacts and responses by competent authorities and stakeholders alike. Overall, whilst one can conclude that the EU agri-food sector has shown a high degree of resilience at the onset of the pandemic, the latter has nevertheless revealed its vulnerability to external threats and, with it, the need to guarantee a proper level of preparedness to ensure, in future, food security on the EU market during similar crisis.








European Union: The EU African Swine Fever Crisis and its Impact on International Trade journal article

Francesco Montanari, Cesare Varallo

European Food and Feed Law Review, Volume 9 (2014), Issue 4, Page 254 - 258

African Swine Fever (hereinafter ‘ASF’) is a highly infectious animal disease that, although bearing no risk for humans, is extremely harmful to pigs and wild boars. Normally, it triggers symptoms such as loss of appetite, high fever, haemorrhages in the skin and internal organs, ultimately leading the animal to death within 2-10 days. Presently, no vaccine or treatment exists.
