The School of Technology research team introduced the
"Farm to Fork Technology" project, at a recent trade show in
The Radio frequency Identification (RFID),
Farm to Fork
system was exhibited to the visitors. The system allows
tracking of food products from the farm to the customer, and allows
customers to see where their food came from using their smart phone
or an in-store terminal.
A research team from the School of
technology led by Prof Bob Newman, and including Prof Rob Moreton,
Piero Filippin, Marek Hornak and Lynsey Whitfield, along with our
partners in the Farm to Fork project, including Prof Mira Trebar of
the University of Ljubjana, Slovenia and Prof Iñigo Cuiñas of the
University of Vigo, Spain. The project had a stand at
FoodTec 2012 in Cologne, Europe's largest food technology trade
show and made two presentations at the show's 'speaker's
The purpose was to present The RFID-Farm to
Fork project, an EC CIP project, submitted and managed by the
School of Technology, with 9 partners across 5 countries,
totalling €3.6M of research over 2.5 years.
Prof Newman said "it was encouraging to
see the highly positive feedback that came from members of the food
business attending the show. It's very good to know that after two
years of hard work by all the partners doing this research, that it
will have confirmed its potential to have a real impact on the
every day lives of European food consumers".
