In the latest issue of Bændablaðin, there is an interview with Margréti Geirsdóttir, project manager at Matís, about the project Is the grass greener on the other side? which is supported by the Food Fund.
Together with Matís, the Agricultural University of Iceland (Lbhí), the Icelandic Farmers Association (BÍ) and the Agricultural Advisory Center (RML) are participating in the project. The project started last fall and is for one year. Its purpose is, among other things, to acquire knowledge about protein processing from Icelandic grass and analyze the feasibility of setting up a plant for protein processing from grass in Iceland. The benefit of the project is increased food security in Iceland, which is achieved by increasing domestic protein production for use in feed and food.
