Last Tuesday, May 31, Toulouse hosted the 1st General Assembly of the SISTERS project. Funded with the European Commission and with a budget of more than €10 million, SISTERS fights against the 89 million tons of food waste that we generate every year in the EU, which represents a cost of almost €150 billion per year and an impact huge environmental.
Under the coordination of AITIIP Technology Center (Zaragoza, Spain), the Assembly welcomed the 18 partners of the Project, spread over 8 different countries, who analyzed the first objectives achieved. SISTERS acts at all levels of the food value chain, with value propositions ranging from the production step of fruits and vegetables to the final stages of marketing. In the project, ENCO occupies a fundamental task, as it is the link between the technological developments and their future commercial deployment.
