                  War in Spain against Palm Oil

                  It´s been on the radar for the last year but only in the past couple of weeks, it is more present in every conversation in Spain.

                  The Congress has asked the Government to keep it from the consumption for children, to avoid advertising campaigns of products that contain it and to highlight clearer labeling. Furthermore, they requested action towards banning products with palm oil from vending machines, canteens at schools and sport and health centers.

                    Expanding the forest resource in Wicklow

                    County Wicklow, the Garden of Ireland has a rich tradition in forestry. It has the largest proportionate forest cover by county with 22% of the land area in forestry. While over 15,000 hectares of this forest area is already in private ownership, significant further opportunities exist for farmers and landowners to diversify into a forest enterprise and thereby capitalize on an outstanding natural resource.

                        Pesticide residues in food: risk to consumers remains low | European Food Safety Authority

                        Food consumed in the European Union continues to be largely free of pesticide residues or to contain residues that fall within legal limits, new figures show. The latest monitoring report published by EFSA reveals that more than 97% of food samples collected across the EU in 2015 were within legal limits, with just over 53% free of quantifiable residues. The figures are in line with those recorded in 2014.
