About us

EFFAT represents the interests of more than 2.6 million members, affiliated to 118 national trade unions in 38 European countries in agriculture, food production and tourism.

EFFAT was founded in 2000 when the European Committee of Food, Catering and Allied Workers (ECF) merged with the European Federation of Agricultural Workers' Union (EFA). It is a single umbrella organisation serving trade unions throughout the food-processing chain ‘from farm to fork’.

EFFAT is a member of the European Trade Union Confederation (ETUC) and also a regional organisation within the International Union of Food, Agricultural, Hotel, Restaurant, Catering, Tobacco and Allied Workers’ Associations (IUF).
