About the Project
Gross domestic product of any growing nation is partly dependent on their level of export. In the last few decades, globalisation in businesses has brought opportunity for food producers and distributors to export their excess home-grown food products. However, in this context, food quality, food security and food traceability are some main concerns of food exporters and consumers. Nations with huge capacity of food production struggle to export their excess food production due to lack of compliance with quality and security regulations from Food Standards Agency of various nations. To tackle this situation, it may be important to have food policy in place and also to use appropriate level of smart technology applications effectively in production and storage to convince the local Food Quality Control Associations in order to join the global food supply chain. Some practitioners are using simple technology such as RFID and bar code scanning to enhance tracking and traceability.
In your research project, you can see how food policies with support of (smart) technology can:
- help sustainable food flow locally and globally
- empower the food sector with traceability
- help building social and economic status of the local community
- help building necessary infrastructure and capacity
