Promoting new practices for farm-to shelf nutrient tracking and sustainability   

Sites: Ireland, Italy
Manager: Teagask

ISP4 will apply a system engineering approach to complete full supply chain nutrient tracking and environmental impact assessments during the process of product development and innovation using products obtained from IPS1 / 2 / 3.

The use of advanced digital tools to track GHG emissions and carbon capture during the lifecycle of food products will be promoted, linked and replicated to the business models in the other IPSs.

Emission and nutrient profiles will be captured and quantified for different varieties selected on the basis of optimal growth across three different pedo-climatic regions.

State-of-the-art spectroscopy technologies will be applied to trace nutrients across the protein journey from Farm to Fork and will be complemented with LCA studies including processing resources and cost/benefit analysis, e.g. Siemens gPROMS Process and FormulatedProducts® software to model composition (protein, fat, CHO, minerals, vitamins, antinutritional components), energy and emissions/carbon capture will acquire data for Life Cycle Inventory and provide the output of Life Cycle Assessment. Prototypes of innovative products with an ingredient label that displays not only nutritional composition but also carbon use efficiencies will be demonstrated.
