Against a complex international backdrop, the European Union and Latin America and the Caribbean have an opportunity to relaunch their relations. In this era, food security has an important place on the bi-regional agenda, testament to which is the series of policies approved by the European countries. The evolution of trade in food points to certain lost spaces, but it still holds enormous potential, for which it will be necessary to make progress on certain pending trade agreements. The success of this new era will depend on the severity of the legislation the EU adopts on trade.
