ReValue: Innovative technologies for improving resource utilization in the Indo-European fish value chains

ReValue: Innovative technologies for improving resource utilization in the Indo-European fish value chains

ReValue will contribute to achieving the Sustainable Development goal (SDG) on food losses reduction, by developing innovative technologies for the Surimi industry, namely reducing losses by improved cold chain management and efficient conversion of rest raw materials and wash water into value-added protein and oil ingredients for food and feed applications.

Each year, 1.3 billion tonnes of food is lost globally. In order to enable a sustainable development of the food system, the EU and Member States adopted the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) in September 2015, which include a target to halve per-capita food waste at the retail and consumer level by 2030, while reducing food losses along the food production and supply chains.

In Europe, the majority of food waste occurs at the consumption stage, but in India most of the loss occurs at the post-harvest stage due to improper handling and cold chain management.

Coordinated by SINTEF Ocean, ReValue aims to examine how improved cold chain management and the efficient conversion of rest raw materials and wash water into value-added protein and oil ingredients can help to reduce food losses. Surimi is selected in ReValue because various whitefish species can be used to make Surimi and thus the technologies developed in ReValue could be applied to a wide range of fish rest raw materials.
