Food Chain Transparency

About This Group

WG5 sets out to develop a smartphone app that tells the backstory of food products using existing and developed LCA data and improving various sustainability assessment criteria. Ecological, so-cial, and health impacts are the three target factors around which a suite of data sets will be orga-nized for various food categories. Close cooperation with key stakeholders in the food industry will be needed to maximize the impacts of this work and steps are being taken to ensure this is possi-ble.
