MobFood: MOBILIZING SCIENTIFIC AND TECHNOLOGICAL KNOWLEDGE IN RESPONSE TO THE CHALLENGES OF THE AGRI-FOOD MARKET

MobFood project is the result of an open debate carried out by several agents from
the agribusiness that aims to find the right path to promote the competitiveness
of the national food industry in an organized and integrated manner. It will be
strategically undertaken with a close collaboration between scientific institutions
and private companies grounded on economic growth measures based on R&D,
innovation and technologies for new products, services and processes achievement
with direct effects in all value chain. The principal aim is to make the sector totally
sustainable, resilient, open, safer and with an effective utilization of resources
being consumer-driven.
The main goals will be attained through the implementation of the solution in three
fundamental principles: “Food Safety and Sustainability”, “Food for Health and Wellbeing”
and “Safe Food and Quality”, embodied in the research and development for
several processes, products or services.
The join-venture is composed by 47 entities that represent all Portuguese
agribusiness, with participant companies from different agroindustry subsectors.
R&D entities participants will bring the ability for a complete approach of the
different areas of key knowledge for an acute development of the Portuguese food
industry.
The MobFood project is organized in 9 areas of intervention: Emerging Technologies,
Resources Valorization, Sustainable Packaging, Nutrition, Health and Well-being,
Quality and Food Safety, Authenticity and Traceability of products, Logistics,
