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.
