Project overview

Strengthening Innovation Capacities Among Central European Alternative Food Networks

Alternative food networks seek to transform food supplies by connecting ethical producers and consumers more directly. Systemic policies to support such networks are widely missing in central Europe and it is time to change this. The FOOD4CE project establishes local and transnational hubs for the food and logistics sectors, in which they can exchange good practices and take up innovative technologies. The hubs will be integrated into the European network of logistics competence centres. More information coming soon.
