Green Supply Chain
Digital transformation services across the
agri-food supply chain
to co-create a sustainable future for all.

Background

Farm to Fork Strategy is at the heart of the European Green Deal aiming to make food systems fair, healthy and environmentally-friendly.
We need to redesign our food systems to make them more sustainable and increase their resilience.

New technologies and scientific discoveries, combined with increasing public awareness and demand for sustainable food, will benefit all stakeholders.

The digital revolution brings opportunities, but many companies still find it difficult to know in which technologies to invest and how to secure financing. More than 90% of SMEs lag behind in digital innovation and need support for their digital transformation.

Our vision

The Green Supply Chain Digital Innovation Hub (DIH) aims at ensuring that all companies, small or large, which operate inside the agri-food supply chain, will take advantage of the opportunities provided by new technologies, in order not to fall victim to the "digital divide".

It is a one-stop shop that will contribute to their digital transformation while promoting sustainable development, circular economy, environmental protection, and tackling climate change.

Thus it will help the formation of a "green supply chain" according to the principles of the new European Commission (EU) directives for the Circular Economy, the new "Green Deal" and the "Farm to Fork" strategy for a sustainable, fair, healthy and environmental-friendly food system.
