REAMIT will adapt and apply new and existing innovative technology to reduce food waste in the supply chains of NWE
Enabling companies to more easily monitor the quality of food throughout the supply chain (farms,packaging sites, food processors, distribution, logistics, wholesalers and retailers)
Resource and Materials Efficiency
The REAMIT project proposes to adapt and apply existing innovative technology to food supply chains in NWE to reduce food waste and hence improve resource efficiency. Reducing food waste is of highest priority for the EU (88Mt or €143B wasted per year). The EU has committed to halving food waste by 2030 by focusing on all stages in the supply chain. 35% of food waste in EU-28 has occurred in supply chains in 2012. Though technologies exist to reduce food waste, they have not been applied to food supply chains.
