The formation of main pillars was a joint output of representatives of Slovenian agriculture and food-related enterprises and representatives of relevant research and development institutions. Together they have defined five so-called action pillars, which represent five main objectives of the strategy. The process of pillar formation is based on thorough consideration of current and future demands in the Slovenian agri-food sector, including future trends and challenges that the sector will encounter. It equally includes food production as well as food processing and it adds as well consumer involvement to focus areas.

In addition to five action pillars, we have also recognized three horizontal areas that need to be significantly improved and incorporated into all five focus areas.
