Section 1 Call 2020 - Agro-Food Value Chain

Basic Information

The Mediterranean diet is considered by the UNESCO as one “Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity” identifying several Mediterranean countries. Together with appropriate techniques of food processing and the correct life-style historically associated to the Mediterranean societies, a balanced diet has been recognized for having multiple health benefits. However, dietary habits of the population of the Mediterranean basin have been changing during the last decades mainly for the increasing incidence of social phenomena (e.g. fast meals/or junk food), with negative health consequences such as rises in obesity and incidence of non-communicable diseases (such as diabetes, heart attacks, cancer).
