INTAQT is a five-year H2020 project, led by INRAE, which aims to assess the relationship between animal production systems and the quality of the products they produce, particularly in the poultry and beef sector. INTAQT intends to involve all the actors in the chicken and cattle production chains and consumers. This will be achieved through the development of quality assessment and authentication tools, to provide science-based decision support for policy makers, industries, farmers and consumers as well as develop means to improve husbandry practices complying with high quality of animal products and sustainability of production, defined as the “One Quality” of products.
mEATquality aims to provide consumers with better-quality pork and broiler meat and animals with a high-level of welfare by developing scientific knowledge and practical solutions together with farmers and chain partners. Additional aims are reducing the environmental impact and improving the economic sustainability of the chain. The project will also support the EU Farm to Fork strategy’s objective to combat food fraud by investigating methods to improve traceability and determine authenticity.
The mEATquality project, an H2020 project, is coordinated by Wageningen Research (The Netherlands) and is a multidisciplinary team of 17 partners organisations representing 7 EU countries.
Code:Re-Farm focuses on poultry & goat production systems with the goal of understanding the links between husbandry systems and intrinsic quality of derived products. Novel technologies will be exploited for assessing the intrinsic quality of products along the value chain (Product Lifecycle Monitoring), farm to fork. The insights from this assessment, combined with insights on societal demands and sustainability of production processes will drive alternative solutions that fit sustainable, consumer-driven business.
