We are excited to welcome you at the DigiFresh workshop next 15th December 2022 focused on the digitalization of the fresh fruit and vegetables supply chain.
The supply chain of fresh fruit and vegetables is ready to go more digital. After two years or research we are now ready to share with you how Digital Twins can create a value by optimizing the supply chain management and reducing the food waste.
This workshop is organized by EIT Food, Bioazul, the Aarhaus University, Xsense and KU LEAVEN as one of the main activities of the DigiFresh project. It is time to make the supply chain of fresh fruit and vegetables more digital. It is not only about converting data into bits, but it is about creating a value by optimizing the supply chain management and reducing the food waste.
What will you gain from this workshop?
The aim of this workshop is to introduce you to the developed digital twin solution that can be incorporated in the supply chain of fresh fruit and vegetables to monitor the keeping quality and the remaining shelf life of the product. This solution can help in decision making on sale period and price to make sure that customers are offered with fresh produce. This can directly reduce the food waste in the supply chain as well as at the customers’ home.
