Iodised salt and milk are the main sources of I in human diets. However, organic milk is typically low in I and organic salt is not iodised. The project aims to identify and optimise the use of a sustainable seaweed supplement that is suitable for use in organic dairy cow diets, for the production of I-enriched organic milk. This will be achieved via animal trials, feed and milk analyses, and appropriate statistical modelling in the UK, Iceland, and Finland. The sustainable development of I-enriched organic milk can address the currently unmet nutritional need for I. Further implementation in conventional dairying can scale-up I-enriched milk production and benefit the greater population, particularly groups with higher I requirements (e.g. pregnant women, nursing mothers).

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.
