The project builds on interaction with stakeholders involving production, industry, retail, consumers, policy, and research. It organizes work groups, establishes a ‘European Platform Transparent Food’, proposes a European Transparency Backbone and prepares a White Paper on the state‐of‐the‐art as well as the need for future initiatives and research programs towards better transparency.
