This collective adventure is still going on, always with the goal of making organic practices a driver of the transition now underway in agriculture and food. Synabio is also behind Printemps Bio (organic spring), a nation-wide event aimed at raising the public’s awareness of organic agriculture. More recently, the union has been very active in the reform of EU regulations on organic farming (2013–2018) and the Etats Généraux de l’alimentation (French general assembly on food, 2017).
In 2021, we co-organised the Organic World Congress in Rennes. Finally, since 2021, we have been working to promote Planet-Score, a packaging label that identifies the environmental impact of food products to encourage a transition to more eco-friendly agricultural practices.
