SEAFOOD-AGE tackles a common social and economic challenge in the Atlantic Area: an ageing population. Healthy ageing requires a healthy diet, and seafood products provide essential nutrients not always accessible to older adults.
The project will exploit the maritime dimension of the AA regions and will adopt circular economy concepts to:
1) generate ready-to-eat seafood for healthy ageing,
2) produce novel eco-packaging,
3) develop a smart label for better quality, safety and minimum food waste.
The project (see project website) will perform pilot actions at industrial settings in the AA regions to demonstrate and capitalise its results.
Seafood Age project is co-financed by the Interreg Atlantic Area Programme through the European Regional Development Fund.
