AITIIP Technology Centre leads SISTERS, a project that seeks to minimize waste and residues throughout the food chain. The initiative proposes a series of cross-sectoral innovations to reduce food losses by 27% and CO2 emissions by 20% in the case studies. SISTERS develops innovative solutions that cover the entire agri-food value chain: production, processing, logistics, marketing, and consumption.
December 2021 – AITIIP technology centre is leading the European SISTERS project, which proposes a holistic solution to the challenges of the food industry to reduce losses and waste generated at each stage of the food value chain in Europe by 27% and reduce CO2 emissions by around 20% in the project’s case studies. With a budget of 10.1 million euros, of which 8.3 million are provided by the European Commission, the consortium is made up of 18 partners from 8 different European countries with a wealth of experience in food science and technology.
Thanks to these cross-sectoral innovations, SISTERS expects to achieve an ambitious environmental and economic impact on the current dynamics of the food system in terms of production, processing, logistics, marketing, and consumption, contributing to the reduction of food waste at all stages of the process and changing the mentality of consumers about their less sustainable behaviour.
The SISTERS project officially started on November 1st, 2021 and is scheduled to end on April 30th, 2026. The project partners are:
Fondazione Edmund Mach (Italy), Rebus Labs AG (Switzerland), Kungliga Tekniska Hoegskolan (Sweden), Safe Food Advocacy Europe (Belgium), Munster Technological University (Ireland), Bio-mi (Croatia), Innovarum (Spain), Gaia Biomaterials (Sweden), BM Services (France), The Real Green Food Co. (Riberebro) (Spain), Eroski (Spain), Archa Srl (Italy), Asociación de Organizaciones de Productores de Frutas y Hortalizas de Murcia (PROEXPORT) (Spain), ITC Packaging (Spain), Natureplast SAS (France), Enco SRL (Italy) and Carbiolice (France).
