The project Improved quality, shelf life and less waste in the value chain of Icelandic vegetables was intended to strengthen the vegetable sector in Iceland with new knowledge and support increased production of high quality vegetables.
The main topics of the project were (1) shelf life research, (2) examinations of ways to create value from by-products, and (3) analysis of ways to reduce shrinkage in the value chain. This report is about
shelf life research and analysis of opportunities in the value chain.
The project submits three other reports on the above main topics.
The project has been carried out in collaboration with horticultural farmers and retailers.
