This month, our particular display takes a take a look at the fallout from the coronavirus pandemic on Europe’s meals manufacturing – particularly the affect in Luxembourg, which, because of its small measurement and landlocked place, is particularly prone to any brakes at the EU’s freedom of motion.

When France, Germany and Belgium closed their borders to prevent the virus spreading, that left Luxembourg quickly bring to an end.

Our particular display this month takes a take a look at how Luxembourg overcame the ones demanding situations – and the way it can care for the affect of the pandemic on its meals provide.

Partially two of the display, we talk with a Luxembourgish meals sociologist to learn the way Luxembourg’s reliance on meals imports become a handicap all the way through the continent-wide lockdown, in addition to with Luxembourg’s Inexperienced MEP to speak about how sustainable farming objectives can also be maintained post-Covid.

Our stories focal point on France, and the way the continued malaise within the farming sector if truth be told were given a spice up all the way through the disaster, as many of us realised how reliant they have been on agriculture to supply meals; in the meantime, we meet with farmers in Germany apprehensive that the long run Commonplace Agricultural Coverage may make it even more difficult for them to make ends meet.
