The European Project Co-Fresh

Working together to create sustainable and competitive European value chains for fruit and vegetables, including high protein yields



Starting from current best practices and key success factors of innovative value chains, and the state of the art in technological and non-technological approaches, the main objective of CO-FRESH is to (re)design and pilot innovative systemic approaches to agri-food value chains to scale up this innovation at the European level. These innovative approaches will improve the economic, social and environmental performance/efficiency of these value chains, through smart integration of technological, social, organisational, managerial and institutional innovations; all of which serve to make them more sustainable.
