The paper discusses the solutions envisaged by the Strategy of the European “from farm to fork”, through a comparison of the solutions accepted in this area in the strategic documents of the Republic of Serbia. The author, in addition to applying the scientific methodology applicable to the analysis of internal legislation and EU law, also uses the statistical methods necessary to provide relevant reports on the effectiveness of the adopted measures. In this sense, after the introductory considerations, the paper presents an overview of the measures used to effect the solutions provided for in the EU Strategy. Through the analysis of the annex of the Strategy “from farm to fork”, the author provides adequate explanations related to the issues of the greatest importance for a correct, healthy and more environmentally friendly food system of the EU. The analysis draws conclusions according to which the construction of the food chain is in the interest of consumers and producers, if those chains meet climatic and ecological requirements. In the conditions of transition and promotion of global values, the influence of this strategic document for our country is of great importance. This is indicated by the analysis of the Agriculture and Rural Development Strategy of the Republic of Serbia for the period 2014-2024. year, which points to the conclusion that our internal legislative order is mostly aligned with EU standards in this area. However, all the planned solutions from the EU strategy “from farm to fork”, have not been fully implemented, and could be incorporated into our legal order through the adoption of a new strategic document for the period 2025-2035. years.
