Closing the EU's protein gap by growing more protein crops inside the EU is easier said than done. This brochure, also available in German and Spanish, explains why greater efforts must also be taken to support a rational, coherent and realistic protein strategy that fosters research and innovation, and recognises the importance of trade. Through relevant facts and figures, it demonstrates the importance GM soybeans, smooth imports flows, and better enabling access by EU farmers and plant breeders to modern plant breeding tools to enable innovation.
