TRAFOON Training Workshops

To support traditional food SMEs, TRAFOON organized 30 Training Workshops for SMEs in 13 European countries on five food category (Vegetables & Mushrooms, Fish, Grain, Olives and Sweet Fruits) during 2015. Additionally, one workshop on "Food safety and quality" was also held. In 2016, a second round of Training Workshops will be held. Target groups for the Workshops are mainly SMEs but also food industry, SME associations and food researchers. These training workshops improve communication and transfer of innovations between research and food SMEs. Each training workshop addresses the requirements/gaps/shortfalls of SMEs which were identified during the first year of TRAFOON project and includes trainings on technical innovations which are specific to the traditional foods category, as well as generic topics on food processing, food packaging, food safety, food quality and stabilization of processing protocols, marketing, legal issues, European food law, IPR, certification and labelling.


Several workshops are planned for the year of 2016. If you would like to gain more information on the events, please click the button or use the side navigation.
