Digital Traceability

We are supporting technologies that make it easier to digitalise traceability. This can improve the safety, efficiency and sustainability of food.

Tracking food via digital systems

Digital traceability can alleviate and reduce many of the agrifood sector’s most pressing risks. It can optimise the use and reuse of materials or resources, boosting the sustainability and cost-efficiency of the food supply chain. Digital traceability technologies can also certify products to ensure only fair and sustainable goods make it to market - and that the authenticity of these products are communicated to the consumer.

At EIT Food, we work with a number of startups and partners innovating and making digital traceability the norm in the agrifood industry
