«Protein and biomolecules sources for nutritional security and biodiversity of bakery products in a circular food system»

The world population is expected to reach 9 billion by 2050. As a result, food intake is increasing worldwide and traditional harvesting methods are suffering from depletion of natural available resources. Along with the increasing food request, food production is affected by significant rates of food losses that represent useless resource consumption and contribute significantly to waste generation. Therefore, sustainable agriculture will have to ensure higher, more stable and more eco-efficient production, more nutritious food and better quality final products while using less land, fewer chemicals and other inputs. The implementation of resource-efficient circular economy principles across the whole food system can contribute to reduce its environmental footprint and minimise food losses and waste.

Five scientific partners and an association of Operators in Organic Farming are participating in a new ambitious research project named PROVIDE “Protein and biomolecules sources for nutritional security and biodiversity of bakery products in a circular food system”, which focuses on valorisation of food transformation industry by-products for use in bakery production. It aims to to promote circularity in the agrifood systems, fostering the sustainability of production and consumption and supporting the valorization of otherwise wasted by-products, thus reducing food losses significantly. This will be based on “green” innovation processes, which will use also material from organic products and therefore the resulting new products can be marketed “organic”.

The partners are:

  • Technical University of Munich (TUM, Germany) – Coordinator
  • Chouaib Doukkali University (UCD, Morocco) – Partner
  • Italian National Agency for new Technologies, Energy and Sustainable Economic Development (ENEA, Italy) – Partner
  • National Institute of Research & Development for Food Bioresources (IBA Bucharest, Romania) – Partner
  • Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU, Norway) – Partner
  • Romanian Association of Operators in Organic Farming (Bio-Romania, Romania) – Partner

The project will run for three years. On the 25th of January, 2021, PROVIDE project kicked off virtually, bringing together 18 representatives of the partner organizations and 5 representatives from stakeholders, with the Susfood2/Core Organic representative.
