“It Takes Bread and Flowers”

It was March 2017 when the then Minister of Agriculture, Johann Schneider-Ammann (70), made a promise to farmers in parliament: “It is our intention to maintain a degree of self-sufficiency of 60 percent gross and 55 percent net, increasing population.” Even with », he said in the debate on food security initiatives.

Schneider-Ammmann has long left the post of the Federal Council – and the promise was apparently forgotten in the Federal Republic of Bern. In 2020, while gross self-sufficiency was only around 56 per cent, the net worth, which takes into account only food produced with domestic feed, was also 49 per cent. Reason enough for the SVP to launch a popular initiative that calls for a minimum 60 percent quota.
