How is the increase in microbiome knowledge leading to advances in the Farm-to-Fork strategy?
In a paper*, recently published in Frontiers of Microbiology, our partners describe 14 concrete examples of products, methodologies, applications, tools and processes resulting from microbiome research that have created an environmental, economic and societal impact. These success stories cover a broad range of fields within the agrifood chain, including plant health, feed products & livestock health, food production and human health. The selection of case studies involves, for example, microbiome-based innovations that have led to commercialization and implementation by the industry (such as feed probiotics or biofertilizers), improved food safety management systems or amendments of legal regulations based on microbiome research.
Let’s take a closer look at where and how microbiome research has proven to play a tangible role in the transition to sustainable food systems. And be sure not to miss the fun graphic material we’ve created for this publication!
