Food science, food industry and food associations kicked off the Horizon 2020 FAIRCHAIN project with online discussions on 5 and 6 November 2020. Representatives of the 20 project partners, located in 8 European countries, began planning the work for this four-year project, which has a budget from the European Commission of nearly 7 million euros.

At the kick-off meeting, FAIRCHAIN work package leaders outlined their plans for the first year of the project. We can expect an innovation platform, a communication plan, mapping of current food chains, product development and life cycle assessments.
