TÜV AUSTRIA Hellas participates – in the framework of the European Horizon 2020 Program – in the creation of a digital data platform (“TheFSM” = The Food SafetyMarket) for the testing and certification in the agri-food sector.
Being in charge on behalf of the TÜV AUSTRIA Group in this project and with the participation of Group’s selected subsidiaries i.e. TÜV AUSTRIA Romania and TÜV AUSTRIA Cert (Austria), will carry out extensive pilot testing, helping to improve the business process and the credibility of the way food certification is performed in Europe. At the same time, it will improve the sharing of data used in the issuance of certificates – in real time – and enhance the digitization of the certification process, while reducing the time for relevant decision-making and controlling critical points at early enough stages.
The food certification market (expected to reach $ 11.45 billion by 2023) is a vertical and multidimensional process that has the common need for all stakeholders to share food safety data in clearly defined and automated ways, as well as controlled mechanisms that can enhance trust and cooperation.
