The OECD Food Chain Network is a platform for dialogue, analytical work and policy experiences on issues of relevance to the food chain, such as sustainability, health, competition, and transparency among others.
The Network brings together government officials, industry stakeholders, NGOs, other IGOs and academic experts. Industry participation is coordinated through the OECD Business and Industry Advisory Committee (BIAC) with efforts to engage more of the downstream distribution and retail actors.
