A couple of days ago it was Winter Solstice - the shortest day of the year. In Scandinavia this was once an important cause for celebration. For the Vikings it not only marked the coming of winter (with the amount of snow outside my windows right now...

As people who climb a mountain or run a marathon would know, one of the best feelings in life is the satisfaction of achieving a goal after working long and hard to get there. Today, I reach a goal which I set out when taking office in 2004: to get t...

Mariann Fischer Boel 5 Years, 4 Months, 6 Days, 12 Hours, 12 Minutes ago
Over the last few months, EU consumers have probably felt from time to time that they’ve been watching a kind of “magic trick”. They get the car and the kids back from the weekly food shopping, and turn on the TV to see images of de...

Earlier this week we had an Agriculture Council meeting in Luxembourg. Among the many issues discussed, there were two rather contradictory points on the agenda. One the one hand, we had yet another deadlock in the vote on the approval of three varie...
Risky business NEW
Mariann Fischer Boel 5 Years, 4 Months, 4 Weeks, 6 Hours, 49 Minutes ago
We often hear that successful businessmen are those who are able to predict how the market will change and who have the strength and determination to act on it. Such traits, however, are not enough to guarantee success in farming.  It is common know...

Mariann Fischer Boel 5 Years, 5 Months, 1 Week, 6 Days, 2 Hours, 58 Minutes ago
Last Thursday (17 September), while speaking to the full European Parliament I announced proposals for the next steps to speed up the recovery of the EU dairy sector. I say “steps” deliberately. These are not dramatic, blind leaps – bec...

On Sunday I announced at the Växjo Informal Council that I wouldn’t seek a second term as Commissioner.  It was not an easy decision. I’ve had fantastic 5 years. We have achieved much, continuing the reforms of the CAP, making our polic...

Harvest’s in the air NEW
Mariann Fischer Boel 5 Years, 6 Months, 2 Weeks, 4 Days, 16 Hours, 12 Minutes ago
It has been a very busy summer as always with the smell of the harvest in the air and the tractors and combines going at full speed. I know most of my colleagues are also taking the time to relax and recharge their batteries away from Bruxelles. Myse...

Mariann Fischer Boel 5 Years, 7 Months, 2 Weeks, 6 Hours, 45 Minutes ago
The EU’s dairy farmers feel like they’re sailing through a storm right now. As the market crisis continues, it’s real people who are feeling the pain - not just statistics on a spreadsheet. EU heads of state and government are very...

Mariann Fischer Boel 5 Years, 7 Months, 2 Weeks, 2 Days, 7 Hours, 12 Minutes ago
As I am writing this, a competition jury is gathering in Brussels to find the ten best entries for the new EU-wide organic logo. This will not be an easy task. We had 3393 entries! I am amazed and I find it really reassuring to see such a huge intere...

Use your vote NEW
Mariann Fischer Boel 5 Years, 9 Months, 10 Hours, 21 Minutes ago
Today I was interviewed by a journalist who asked me how we could get people to vote at the European elections. This, I must admit, was not an easy question to answer.  Paradoxically enough, the interest of the citizens in the European Parliament se...
