Are you a student in a food study programme eager to find solutions to improving short food supply chains? We want to hear your ideas!

Are you a student in a food study programme eager to find solutions to improving short food supply chains? We want to hear your ideas!

The FOOD FACTORY-4-US 2023, supported by the FAIRCHAIN project, gives students in food science the opportunity to submit a project aimed at innovating in existing short food supply chains to make them stronger and more competitive.

Projects must identify a specific challenge/problem in an existing short food supply chain and develop an exploitable solution to that challenge/problem. The aim is to improve the competitiveness of the SFSC in a way that maintains or improves resource efficiency and is climate-friendly, while also leading to the growth of the SFSC towards an intermediate food supply chain. The innovative and exploitable solution proposed may address an economic, social, organizational or technological challenge in the existing SFSC and should be potentially applicable to other SFSCs in other regions. Examples could be anywhere in the value chain including raw materials through processing, packaging, logistics and marketing.

Students taking part in the competition are also expected to take part in an online training programme and a virtual final conference between April and June 2023.

Further details about this year’s edition can be found on ISEKI-Food Association’s website. You may also read our article about the results of the 2022 edition.

FAIRCHAIN participates in FRUIT LOGISTICA

FAIRCHAIN participated in the FRUIT LOGISTICA  fair, which took place in Berlin from 8 to 10 February. It is one of the biggest fairs in Europe that covers every sector of the fresh produce business and provides a complete picture of the latest innovations in the international supply chain. Our project partner, Confagricoltura, presented the Swiss case study, which deals with the valorisation of apple pomaces and apricot pits. Check out the case study flyer here.
