Global FOODture supports the sustainable transition of the food system through stimulating global collaboration and innovation. The project develops and implements a joint internationalisation strategy that facilitates international collaboration in countries outside Europe for European SMEs. With this approach, Global FOODture will help strengthen participants’ capabilities to adapt to food sustainability challenges. Download Onepager
|For this project the target region is Asia, particularly the four key markets of Japan, South Korea, Singapore, and Thailand. Asia contains a large proportion of the world’s population, with a potentially high environmental impact. It also has a rapidly developing middle class with the purchasing power to buy sustainable products and services and an increased awareness of environmental issues. In more recent years, Asia has become the largest driver for growth, as an innovation, and an entrepreneurship engine.|
SMEs activities: Masterclasses, Matchmaking and International missions
Starting in September 2022, 12 online thematic masterclasses will take place with topics in the following 5 categories:
- Agriculture cultivation support solutions
- Alternative proteins
- Health products, functional and personalised food
- Sustainable packaging
- Reducing Food waste
In addition, online matchmaking events and International training programs with each of the 4 Asian countries will be organised throughout the year. Eventually, 30 SMEs participate in a mission to two of the target markets: Thailand and Singapore. During these missions, the SMEs will have the opportunity for individual, face-to-face meetings as well as site visits to enable a full exchange of information and to cement a business relationship.
