This paper realised in the framework of the Think Sustainable Europe network (by IEEP, IDDRI, Ecologic, BC3, SEI, and AMO) defines what a sustainable agri-food system should look like according to the scientific literature and how an Sustainable Food System law could bring EU food systems more in line with the evidence. It also explores the potential objectives of a law and how to define a sustainable EU agri-food system, discusses the architecture of the law, and explores the need for a multi-level governance framework involving Member States. Finally, the conclusion considers possible political pathways to the achievement of an ambitious SFS law.
