The recent pandemic has resulted in enormous amounts of surplus leftovers such as vegetables and fresh fruits, causing difficulties for farmers. At the same time, a growing number of people do not have enough resources to feed themselves and their families due to the economic shock and rising unemployment caused by the COVID-19 crisis. Robin Food will offer new life to those leftovers, transforming them into new food products, for example tomato soup. The food products will be launched in Spain, The Netherlands and Belgium, focusing on making them available particularly to socially vulnerable groups.
Robin Food includes vulnerable groups in the revalorisation of extra leftovers in the food chain.
Healthricous will introduce a digital solution that makes shopping, cooking and keeping track of the daily food intake easy and accessible.
Smart-ET will use COVID-19 data from farms to predict variations in dairy production and market feed costs, helping to reorganise dairy production and supply during pandemic events or similar market shocks.
This project will conduct research at hospitals in Italy and Germany into whether deficiencies in micronutrients such as zinc, selenium and vitamin D have a correlation with the severity of disease in COVID-19 patients
