The vision of the Malta Food Agency is for Malta to have locally produced food from farming and fishing of higher value. To move towards this vision and be part of the solution for adding value to food, the MFA works to support and strengthen the transformation of food along the value chain, supporting sales and marketing from production, trading, processing and food manufacturing.
The Malta Food Agency’s vision and mission are aligned to the fundamental principles of the EU’s Farm to Fork Strategy – for a fair, healthy and environmentally-friendly food system and the strategic objectives of the Ministry for Agriculture, Fisheries, Food, and Animal Rights, particularly in terms of fostering sustainability and competitiveness of agriculture and fisheries, strengthening the institutional capacity and improving market access and fair trading.
To add value to food from farming and fishing, the Malta Food Agency works towards the following goals:
- To foster collaboration among farmers and fishermen and improve their bargaining power and position in the food chain.
- To ascertain that food from farming and fishing attains marketing standards and can be certified with quality labels and achieve brands of distinction.
- To modernise the agricultural and fishing sectors by stimulating innovation, digitilisation and entrepreneurship.
- To improve operational efficiency in the food supply and value chain through better regulation, transparency, accountability and control.
