Summary and objectives

The goal of the FOODTURE project is to boost the sustainable transition of the food system globally through collaboration and innovation. FOODTURE will develop and implement a joint internationalisation strategy that facilitates access to third countries for SMEs. This joint strategy will help SMEs enter new markets and generating increased sales, improve their international positioning and help them to find the best future cooperation partners. In short, FOODTURE will strengthen participants’ capabilities to adapt to food sustainability challenges, bringing Europe’s industry to the driving seat in leading the transitions towards climate neutrality.

The FOODTURE project brings together the largest and strongest clusters across the agrifood value chain. The food industry is well represented by five leading European agrifood clusters - (Food & Bio Cluster Denmark, FOOD+i, VITAGORA, Flanders’ FOOD and Foodvalley NL, who have joined forces  for the first time with the aim of triggering a sustainable paradigm shift within their sector by empowering SMEs. The consortium is completed by two strong transversal industries clusters , Packaging Cluster and DIH Agrifood, which close the loop bringing down sectoral boundaries and allow  cross-sectoral collaboration. Altogether the partnership brings together more than 2000 SMEs as active members, and thanks to its wide network, the outreach of the project can be exponentially maximised.

The target region selected for this ambitious project is Asia, particularly the four key markets of Japan, South Korea, Singapore, and Thailand. 

Results expected

The FOODTURE project is aiming at a minimum of three cooperation agreements between the consortium and with Asian cluster partners, as well as long-term agreements on formation of a Global Climate Alliance for Food with a minimum of 15 clusters.

Of the SMEs participating in the online events, and subsequent follow-up missions to the target region, a minimum of 40 SMEs will start a formal business cooperation with partners matched during the FOODTURE project. Some SME will take part in both activities, as a natural progression.
