Impact on sustainability, shelf life and nutritional value by vertically farmed leafy greens via a new local supply chain
Access to fresh produce is and will continue to be an issue in the densely populated European cities. Due to the long and complex supply chain up to 40% of the products ends as waste and the nutrient value of the remaining ones is often degenerated at time of consumption.
Keeping fruit and vegetables fresher for longer
This project puts citizens at the centre of shaping high-tech innovations in food production to become healthier and more sustainable.
