Trace Alliance is happy to announce a new working group in our partnership hub. From today, the partnership is stronger for a Food & Agriculture Technology working group, focusing on digitalisation and trusted data exchanges in the food and agriculture industry. The working group will be chaired by Grigoris Chatzikostas — founder & CEO at Rainno, VP for Business Development in FoodScale Hub and a central figure of a multitude of European-wide projects for the digital transformation of the agrifood sector and the establishment of a vibrant network of Digital Innovation Hubs.

“It is now more clear than ever that we need to urgently re-build our food system on a more fair and sustainable basis. Thanks to the data revolution, there are so many powerful tools at our disposal, but technology alone is not enough. We have to connect the dots, mobilize innovators and intensify co-operation to achieve what is possible, without leaving anyone behind. This is exactly our ambition in Trace Alliance’s working group on Food & Agriculture Technology, and we want you onboard!”

Grigoris Chatzikostas, CEO at Rainno, VP for Business Development in FoodScale Hub.

“Having been involved in numerous projects bringing beyond state-of-the-art technologies to the agrifood sector, we are excited to be able to contribute to the launch of a special purpose working group to tackle the challenges of the industry within the new working group harnessing principles of neutrality, inclusiveness and usability. We are now opening doors to organisations to work together in ensuring a more transparent, trusted and sustainable global food system using the power of the OriginTrail Decentralised Knowledge Graph.”

Žiga Drev, Managing Director at Trace Labs — OriginTrail core team.

As mentioned today marks the day on which Trace Alliance starts its second working group, “Food & Agriculture Technology”. The focus of the working group is to find innovative solutions to bring the OriginTrail ecosystem closer to the food and agriculture industry in Europe and other continents alike. The members of the working group will work together to exchange best practices from their current work as well as collaborate on joint bids for commercial opportunities and R&D projects alike.The priority of the group will be to focus on increasing sustainability of supply chains and transparency in the agri-food value chain to achieve alignment on the key objective of the European Commission’s Green Deal and the Farm to Fork Strategy.

The new working group is now opened for new members, which can register their interests on the Trace Alliance partnership hub website.

The group is expected to hold monthly meetings to discuss learnings and potential opportunities.
