The programme itself works on the following three levels:

- Objectives requiring concentrated means, Areas 1 to 5:
. Area 1. Integrated production and processing chains;
. Area 2. Scaling-up and processing methodologies;
. Area 3. Generic science and advanced technologies for nutritious foods;
. Area 4. Agriculture, forestry and rural development;
. Area 5. Fisheries and aquaculture.

- Objectives addressed by concertation means are contained in the sixth area of the programme, where coordination and consolidation on a European level will be sought through specific networks which build upon national and industrial research programmes and activities.

- Objectives addressed by horizontal activities, which involve specific actions such as demonstration, ethical issues, training and mobility, some involvement and dissemination of results.
