Project Details


Veg-i-Trade is funded by the seventh Framework programme for research of the European Commission. The project seeks to assess the impact of anticipated climate change and globalisation on the safety issues concerning fresh produce and derived food products. Research will be performed concerning the economic structure of the fresh produce chain, and control measures to minimise microbiological and chemical risks will be developed.

Veg-i-Trade unifies 23 international partners from universities, research institutes, SMEs and large industrial partners. Recommendations concerning good practices and quality assurance in the fresh produce supply chain will be developed and exchanged via international collaborations and capacity building. In parallel, Veg-i-Trade will organise discussion fora concerning particular aspects of food sovereignty related to the safety of fresh produce.
