In temperate climate, the average yield/ha of tomato is significantly lower than international standards. The major objectives are to look for, evaluate and to select processing tomato cultivars best adapted to RIS northern countries. Multiple trials will be developed to study physiological and agronomical performance under a wide range of growing conditions, with an improved eco-footprint. To increase the nutritional value of processed tomato, new biostimulants which increase mineral bioavailability for humans, will be developed. Economic, social and environmental benefits:- Increase of competitiveness of tomato markets in EIT RIS (more efficient cultivars and cultivation methods)- Improved eco-footprint (lower use of pesticides, fertilizers, limited transport)- Higher nutritional value of tomatoes as a raw material for processing foods (increased bioavailability) Project is synergistic with the aims of KIC Climate area: “Climate-Smart Agriculture and Sustainable Food Chains”
Increasing nutritional value (bio-stimulated) of selected performant tomato varieties to be cultivated in areas with temperate climate

TriboTec: Protein enrichment and fractionation of side streams by dry tribo-electrostatic separation technology
Triboelectric separation is a technology which is so far used in mineral processing. The water-free separation is based on the induced electrical contact charge of particle surfaces.
Food safety is one of the major concerns in food production. Improving tracking & tracing especially for the management of food safety events can lead to a faster reaction time and elimination of potentially hazardous products, thus prevention of food borne illnesses and loss of lives.
The aim of this project is to make tuber or root-based snacks healthier to meet demand for healthier snacks in developed markets and deliver needed nutrients through commonly consumed foods in developing countries.
EIT Food participated in a three-day event the EU Agro-Trade Platform, implemented as part of the European Agricultural Forum.
To reduce how much food is being wasted, the EIT Food supported start-up Wasteless developed a smart algorithm that allows the application of dynamic pricing markdowns based on expiry....
