With a total volume of 8 million euros the project aims to implement innovative technological, organizational and social solutions for a fairer food value chain in the fruit, vegetable and dairy sector.

At the Institute of Applied Production Sciences, the infrastructure of the new Food Processing Lab will be used. Methodologically, a co-creative process is conducted together with stakeholders from the agriculture and the food sector. Innovations are developed and implemented in a so-called Food Incubator Hub.

The Sustainable Food Systems research team will receive support from the Institute for Systems and Innovation Research of the Fraunhofer Gesellschaft zur Förderung der Angewandten Forschung. A total of six different case studies will be carried out in the project.
