He noted that the situation in Ukraine has deeply destabilized food supply chains and global markets.

"We need to reassess our production strategy to protect our food sovereignty," he said.

Earlier, Macron initiated an urgent plan to alleviate the food crisis the world may face amid Russia's military operation in Ukraine.
