At an event hosted by MEP Jim Nicholson and sponsored by Starch Europe, decision-makers and stakeholders from both side of the Atlantic discussed what it would take to establish a fair level playing field in the agri-food sector when trade of agricultural raw materials and transformed products, such as ethanol and starch, is liberalised. Ensuring a fair level playing field in a newly opened transatlantic market will require that the specificities and sensitivities of all sectors are duly taken into account by the negotiators.
