A Traceability and Early warning system for supply chain of Agricultural Products: Complementarities between EU and China”

Objective

"The main objective of the TEAP project (A Traceability and Early warning system for supply chain of Agricultural Products: Complementarities between EU and China”) is obtaining a better mutual understanding of the agricultural product quality and safety in both the European Union and China, and deep in the knowledge of the technologies that assure these final objectives. The program centers in four areas:

1- Good Agricultural Practices and Quality Standards in application;
2- Alert programs in the production and disease warning models;
3- HACCP software in the logistics;
4- Traceability systems for the supply chain of agricultural products “seed-to-plate”.

First, we wish to understand the specific characteristics of the four working areas in both sides (EU and China), analyzing the different “on the field” working protocols and technologies used and developed by the partners. A point of special interest is sharing knowledge about the specific/local pathogens.

Secondly, we wish to evaluate the applicability of the different approaches and technologies in both areas, analyzing the required changes in order to adapt them to the specific conditions. A key point is assuring the accomplishment of the normative and regulations in both areas.

Third, we shall study how to improve actual technologies and methods jointly, this would be the origin of next common research projects. In this project, we focus in putting in common actual developments, technologies, working schema and analyzing their compatibility (based on GLOBALGAP), preparing the way for future common research projects.

The objectives will be achieved via staff exchange between the different partners and thematic workshops (linked with the four working areas), distributed equally between the EU and China. Finally, we wish to improve the actual relations between the partners of both sides, fixing areas for long time collaboration."
