At the recent virtually-held annual Brussels conference on the Forum for the Future for Agriculture (FFA), I listened to the competent and committed new US Secretary for Agriculture, Tom Vilsack.

He was crystal clear in what he wanted a food and agriculture policy to deliver – he wanted sufficient good food, he wanted it produced sustainably, he wanted open markets that were competitive and science-based rules, he wanted a regenerative agriculture and one that was carbon neutral by 2050.
