Reduction of food loss and waste through innovations at each stage of the value chain
The SISTERS project aims to reduce food loss and waste in the main stages of the Food Value Chain in Europe through innovations targeted to each stage of the chain:
New tools for primary producers for promoting direct and Short Chain sales (farmers); new technological innovations in packaging for processors and retailers; and awareness campaigns for retailers and consumers on food loss and waste.
SISTERS will be a key EU project addressing the problem in a holistic way, reducing Food Loss & Waste by 27.4 % and CO2 emissions by around 20 % in the case studies.
