(21 a) The larger wholesalers, food producers and retailers have a strong position in the value chain, and should therefore also take responsibility in achieving a reduction in the use and risk of chemical plant protection products. Meaningful engagement with their suppliers should lead to long-term contracts between the producers, retailers and wholesalers, exchange of best IPM-practices and the necessary financial and technical support for the farmers and growers to ensure they can swiftly transition towards sustainable farming practices, while securing a fair price for their products.
