What is life Innocereal?

The food industry is facing a variety of challenges that need to be addressed. The most relevant and impactful in the cereal industry in Europe is the disconnection between the sectors of the value chain, which hinders compliance with the 2030 climate change mitigation and adaptation strategies set out in the green agreements (i.e. Green Deal, Farm to Fork Strategy, food security). To meet the challenges towards a circular and carbon neutral industry, we must invest in solutions that connect industry stakeholders to close the loop of cereal production and in this way guarantee and promote food security and transition to sustainable agriculture.

This project creates an ecosystem throughout the entire cereal production chain, demonstrating sustainability and competitiveness in all production stages of the flour, malting and baking industries focused on reaching the high sustainable standards of the market.

In the primary sector, the implementation of best agricultural practices (BAP) in different climatic zones and the use of innovative technologies (e.g. precision agriculture, warning systems, NIR technology) among farmers will aim to increase productivity, with greater efficiency in the use of nutrients, herbicides, fertilizers and mitigating carbon farming practices (i.e higher carbon sequestration in the soil and lower GHG emissions).In the processing industry, standardized model contracts will be created between the different sectors to ensure a consistent supply to the European market of cereal products that comply with food security standards.

As a result, a low-carbon emission cereals certification system will be created together with an “Innocereal EU” sustainability label that will identify sustainably produced bread, pasta, malt, and beer in the market. LIFE Innocereal EU works at all levels of the food chain for digital and sustainable production, mitigating GHGs, and ensuring accurate traceability and a balanced distribution of wealth.
