SISTERS celebrates #WorldAgricultureDay on September 9th, 2022
What is the basic, dictionary definition of Agriculture?
Agriculture is the art and science of cultivating the soil, growing crops and raising livestock. It includes the preparation of plant and animal products for people to use and their distribution to markets. Agriculture provides most of the world’s food and fabrics.
Agriculture plays an essential role in every living being's life
We have mentioned before that Agriculture is the process of growing and producing crops using land, water, seeds, etc. There is no way we could imagine our daily human life without the practice of Agriculture since it sets the basis for humans to obtain the minimum essentials to live a healthy life.
Some of the important roles that Agriculture plays in our daily life are:
Basic source of subsistence
Contribution to National Revenue
Food security for human nutrition
Important supply of produce essential for human living
The primary production sector in the SISTERS project
SISTERS aims to reduce significantly food losses & waste in the primary production sector through the development of an innovative e-commerce web app platform, unique in Europe, so called Short Chain Platform.
Using this platform, each producer would have the opportunity to quickly launch its own e-commerce app to promote and sell online his/her own surplus product to local customers.
With this, farmers will be able to sell their produce that are refused for marketing but that are at good quality conditions or that are overproduced, thus highly reducing food losses.
More about the #SISTERS project
Overall, SISTERS aims to design and foster the implementation of a set of innovations addressed to reduce food loss and food waste generated in the main stages of the Food Value Chain in Europe. Read more here.
