Projects per year
The exchange of sustainability information in the supply chain is becoming increasingly important. Relevant attributes are animal welfare, the environment and other issues that are important for the consumer and the buyer. Wageningen Economic Research contributed to the measurement and exchange of sustainability information through the pork chain, in collaboration with HAS Den Bosch, ZLTO and the Vion Food Group. In this trial, this was concretely elaborated for the carbon footprint of pork. The project was carried out in the framework of a Public-Private Partnership project called DATA-FAIR, which investigates and innovates methods for data exchange in food chains.
