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.
