Plastic packaging plays a vital role in maintaining the quality of fresh meat by prolonging its shelf life and ensuring its protection, maintaining its high quality and sensorial attributes.
There is now a critical requirement to sustainably feed a growing global population, and to find renewable bio-based alternatives to fossil-derived food, feed, materials and energy, provide new valorisation opportunities for such biomass.
Red meat offers known health benefits for vulnerable groups in society such as the elderly (sarcopenia) and contains one of the highest concentration of nutrients of any of the food groups. These health benefits in conjunction with a healthy balanced diet and lifestyle will be validated in RP5.
Seeks to validate the scientific basis for our grass-fed story. In addition, the final pillar aims to explore the market potential for new products and ingredients, such as meat-derived bio-actives and micro-nutrient valorisation.
