Food and agriculture are issues that directly affect all citizens. A balanced, healthy diet, safe food, clear consumer information when buying food and a strong and sustainable agricultural, forestry and fisheries sector are among the Federal Ministry of Food and Agriculture’s (BMEL) most important goals. At the same time, the BMEL is committed to creating good prospects in our many rural regions, to promoting animal welfare and to improving global food security.
The BMEL has approximately 1,000 employees in Bonn and Berlin working towards these goals. In order to successfully meet the challenges of the future, the BMEL is advised and supported by various authorities and research institutions.
