EN_Nationale en internationale lobby
National and international lobbies
The VBP is affiliated with Biologica and consequently they work actively together to give the organic sector as a whole a stimulus by way of lobby activities aimed at the government and politicians, social organisations, the expertise programme for organic agriculture and organic food, promotional activities, etc.
The VBP is represented in the steering committee of the MBL Taskforce.
At international level, the VBP is organised in the IFOAM EU. Within the IFOAM EU Sector Group Organic Processing (SGOP), sister organisations in Belgium, Germany, France and Finland collaborate in their lobbies in regard to EU legislation in Brussels.
