ENOUGH at the 37th EFFoST International Conference 2023
Several partners from the ENOUGH project were present at the 37th EFFoST International Conference 2023 in Valencia this week.
Several partners from the ENOUGH project were present at the 37th EFFoST International Conference 2023 in Valencia this week. The European Federation of Food Science and Technology (EFFoST) arranged a very interesting conference at which researchers, scientists, policymakers, and students presented the latest developments in the field of food science. We gained new knowledge and inspiration to continue our work on reducing emissions from the food sector.
The ENOUGH project arranged a special session at the conference to showcase some of the latest findings from the project. The session started with a presentation on the importance of reducing emissions in the food chain and the Farm to Fork strategy of the European Green Deal. Next, the estimation of the energy demand and emissions from cold storages in UK for 2019 using the bottom-up model was presented. Our demonstrators were also presented, especially focusing on brine freezing, dynamic controlled atmosphere storage and vacuum freezing. Lastly, our work on policies was presented, addressing policy gaps and feasible policy interventions in the European food value chain.
We also arranged a dedicated workshop about policy solutions for a sustainable, healthy and safe food system. This was held for a selected focus group consisting of experts from both science and industry. The workshop provided valuable insights to be further used to develop policy measures for the food value chain to help achieve the goal of zero carbon emissions by 2050.
The conference also featured exceptional poster sessions, to which ENOUGH contributed with a poster entitled "Could Consumers Environmental Perceptions Transform Food Systems?". Several participants came by to discuss this interesting topic.
