Action pillar 5: FOOD, NUTRITION AND CONSUMER
The role of the consumers (integration into the function and development of the agro-food industry, monitoring and analysing their behaviour and perception about food) is crucial for establishing an appropriate system that will lead to the innovation development of the entire agro-food chain. Due to the digital revolution, an open-minded perception of new technologies and products is required. Action pillar 5 is closely linked to SRIP Health-Medicine and SRIP Sustainable Tourism.
