Vitagora is a partner of FoodPackLab 2: innovation in packaging and deeptech, and internationalisation support for European SMEs


In September 2020, the FoodPackLab project launched with the support of the European Union’s COSME Programme, to focus on generating opportunities for European SMEs in the areas of deeptech and packaging for food safety, as well as creating a bridge in these sectors between Europe, India and South Africa.


The project FoodPackLab 2 aims to foster cross-border and cross-sectorial collaboration of clusters and business networks in the strategic field of smart food chains. It connects clusters from four different sectors (agriculture, food processing, packaging and deep tech) and 5 European countries (Belgium, Denmark, France, Italy and Spain) in order to facilitate European SMEs' access to new global value chains and ensure their position as global leaders of innovation in targeted industries.


By fostering deeptech-packaging partnerships for food innovation and safety, the project aims to link together all actors of the sector and to boost their development by highlighting complementarities between existing economic activities.


The FoodPackLab 2 framework for cross-border and cross-sectoral collaboration, initiated with FoodPackLab (https://foodpacklab.eu/), will be further developed through the organisation of the FPL 2 webinar series, fact-finding missions, internationalisation missions for European SMEs to India and South Africa and follow up activities. It will result in new business projects between SMEs benefiting from project's activities, as well new collaborations between the consortium and international actors.


The project consortium is made up of Secpho (Spain), Packaging Cluster (Spain), Systematic (France), Vitagora (France), Food Bio Cluster Denmark (Denmark), CNR-IFAC (Italy) and Pack4Food (Belgium).The consortium will also elaborate an exit strategy to ensure the sustainability of project outcomes and continuity of work after the project's end.
