Project: Trace & Trust Hubs for MED food

Acronym MedFood
Project Topic Med Food TTHubs project aims to establish and pilot operation of Trace & Trust Hubs focusing on Mediterranean food products as key points in the reform of tracing and authenticity procedures of traditional Mediterranean foods. Med Food TTHubs focuses on adding value to high quality food products by providing documented traceability of the whole “seed-to-self” supply chain, including nutritional profile of the products. The specific challenges tackled by T-T Hubs will be the provision of innovative services in this filed and the exploitation of the necessary knowledge regarding technologies, methods and approaches for sustainable, efficient and trustful agro-logistics chain. The solution that Med Food TTHubs is therefore geared to achieve expected outcomes and impacts, over a 36-month work plan, following a holistic approach based on two axes: (i) Safer and more sustainable Mediterranean food products for people around the world, (ii) Full transparency concerning the traceability and authenticity of these products towards the creation of an end-to-end trust-chain in the food sector. In order to reach the objectives, Med Food TTHubs Consortium brings together ten partners representing different parts of the Mediterranean food value chain from seven different countries. More specifically, two companies providing industrial and enterprise know-how for the definition of scenarios and use cases, the elicitation of requirements, the design of the overall Med Food TTHubs architecture, the constitution of new business models and the identification of criteria for full-path tracing practices. Seven R&D partners embed state-of-the-art knowledge on innovative Med Food TTHubs technologies while bringing novel tools (at TRL levels up to 5). One partner brings its industrial leading experience both at EU and INCO-countries level, for creating the basis/strategies for a successful recruitment and engagement of external stakeholders interested in collaborating along the different phases of the project. The efforts put in Med Food TTHubs by non-EU (3 partners) vs EU countries (7 partners) surpasses 30% and the same happens for the budget. This will ensure that the non-EU countries will have a deep commitment to the project.
