Transparency in the food supply chain is essential for promoting healthy, sustainable, and affordable food production and consumption. The TITAN project is an exciting EU-funded initiative that seeks to achieve this goal through the demonstration of the latest transparency-related solutions.
Through a co-creation approach, TITAN will involve cutting-edge technology providers, SMEs, start-ups, leading research centers, and agri-food stakeholders in the development of a wide range of transparency-related innovations. These innovations will be supported by cross-cutting work packages dedicated to transparency, ICT solutions, policy, business support, management, and communication and dissemination.
TITAN aims to:
- enhance transparency in agri-food businesses with a focus on SMEs,
- improve food choices by providing more transparent information to the consumer,
- enhance food safety and authenticity of products and
- provide improved information on the health and sustainability of food products.
The project will achieve these objectives by developing 15 innovative solutions, including DNA-based Rapid Detection Methods, Blockchain, AI, and IoT, that address key challenges identified in the European Green Deal.
