code: re-farm

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.


The mEATquality project 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.


With the aim of reducing negative environmental impacts while addressing societal demands for safe, nutritious and affordable meat and dairy products, PATHWAYS is about identifying and increasing sustainable practices along the supply and production chains of the European livestock sector. Coordinated by the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences (SLU) and comprising 28 partners from 12 countries, this 5-year (2021-2026) €9 million Horizon 2020 project contributes to the EU Farm-to-Fork Strategy which is at the heart of the EU Green Deal.
