About the project

In this project the partners work on an integrated approach for high-value applications of plant-based side and waste streams in food applications. The valorization vision is based on total use and on the combination of side and waste streams, quality of possible ingredients and products, technology and business cases. For technology the emphasis is on flexibility, scale of application, stabilization and good product functionalities. In combination with analyses of the sustainability of possible valorization routes this approach aims to result in feasible solutions for food loss and waste as part of sustainable food production.


The ultimate goal of this project is to come to zero waste by upcycling and valorizing fruit and vegetable side and waste streams.
