Two of Matís led EIT Food projects, SeaCH4NGE and BLINK were chosen to be promoted by EIT Food as a snapshot of EIT Foods Sustainability and Traceability Success Stories at the Food Navigator ‘Sustainability & Traceability in Focus‘ webinar which was streamed on July 29.
The webinar revolved around Sustainability and Traceability, e.g. the effect of the COVID-19 on consumer awareness regarding food: “Consumer awareness of where food comes from – and the fragility of our food system – has seen in an outpouring of support for local production. Echoes of the disruption wrought by COVID-19 can be seen in the looming climate crisis, making climate-smart food production high on the agenda for food makers, retailers and shoppers alike.” The webinar can be streamed here.
