SAFE is taking part in the EU funded Horizon 2020 project SISTERS. SISTERS aims to reduce food loss and food waste in the main different stages of the Food Value Chain in Europe through innovations targeted to each link of the value chain: new tools to 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 food waste.
With the support of the European Commission, SISTERS will be a key EU project addressing the problem in a holistic way, reducing FLW by 27.4% and CO2 emissions by around 20% in the case studies. Our role within the project will be to conduct advocacy action on food waste at the EU level, as well as strengthening the relationships with other stakeholders operating in food waste.
The project started on November 2021, it will last 4 years and gathers 18 partners from 8 different European countries:
AITIIP Centro Tecnológico (ES)-project coordinator, Agence BM-services (FR), Riberebro Integral S.A. (ES), PROEXPORT (ES), Munster Technological University (IE), Rebus Labs AG (CH), CARBIOLICE (FR), BIO-MI d.o.o (HR), ITC Packaging s.l. (ES), KTH Royal Institute of Technology (SE), Natureplast SAS (FR), EROSKI (ES), Fondazione Edmund Mach (IT), Laboratori Archa s.r.l. (IT), Enco Consulting s.r.l. (IT), INNOVARUM (ES), Safe Food Advocacy Europe A.S.B.L. (BE), and GAIA BioMaterials (SE).
This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under Grant Agreement No. 101037796
