A public summary based on Deliverable 1.1 in the European innovation action project CO-FRESH has been prepared by the WP1 partners. This document presents the main drivers and constraints of sustainability-oriented innovation (SOI) in agri-food value chains. The document contains a summary of an extensive literature review of the academic and grey literature on innovative and sustainable agri-food value chains in Fruits & Vegetables and other crops. The review focusses on identifying the drivers and constraints of successful integration of technological innovation with social, organisational, managerial and institutional changes that support and facilitate sustainability outcomes. Additionally, the report presents a list of 16 factors that are known to have a positive influence on the development and implementation of SOI.
