Partner in the following EIT Food projects


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.
