Institutions

Start date
2020
End date
2023
Objective
Within the global food industry, food growers, manufacturers/processors, import/exporters, distributors, retailers, and packagers, are all expected to be certified to food safety standards. This highlights the importance of food safety and certification. The EU-funded TheFSM project will develop an industrial data platform to give a digital boost to the way food certification takes place in Europe. Specifically, it will build upon state-of-art blockchain technologies to create an open and collaborative virtual environment that facilitates the exchange and connection of data between different food safety actors interested in sharing information that is critical to certification. The project will conduct extensive piloting with European providers of inspection and certification services.
