Locally produced food safety and traceability for municipalities
The AMBROSIA project aims at improving locally produced food safety and traceability in order to clearly improve overall public health and reduce consumer exposure to compromised food. The objectives of the service are: (i) to enable faster and more targeted product recalls; (ii) to improve chain efficiency and the productivity gains resulting from improved product labelling and tracking practices that have the potential to provide “real-time visibility” into product movement through the supply chain; and (ii) to analyse the supplier base, the local food distribution system and to implement supplier development programmes or sustainability management systems. The service mainly targets food distribution chains that need to be more transparent about the food origin, the food nutritional value, its ecological qualities and its way of production and transportation. It targets: producers, processors, distributors, consumers, as well as governments, municipalities, NGOs, certification authorities and regulators. The service uses satellite technology and IoT data to collect and analyse large amounts of data from the food supply chain and transform it into actionable insights. It mainly uses EO and satellite navigation data.
