EIT Food Digital Marketplace for Side Streams

EIT Food Digital Marketplace for Side Streams

A substantial part of the food industry's produce ends up as waste. The goal of this project is to enable companies worldwide to easily identify candidate side streams for valorisation to catalyse match-making between suppliers and buyers and to build a knowledge base for EIT Food making this European consortium a game changer in the global circular bioeconomy.

The following intermediate steps are required.

  • Mapping of sourcing criteria for side streams;
  • Comprehensive capturing of the ingredient composition of each side stream by using cutting-edge analytical technologies (LC-SWATH-MS) enabling quantitative profiling and retrospective analysis of yet unknown compounds;
  • Build a fully searchable analytical database containing all relevant data;
  • Fill technology gaps with processing techniques to meet quality targets for sourcing/ application;
  • Develop matchmaking process between suppliers and buyers;
  • Develop Go-to-Market strategy for the commercial exploitation.
