The next wave of technological progress to sustain the world’s fast-growing global population will capitalize on artificial intelligence (AI) and the Internet of Things (IoT) to improve the precision and sustainability of farming techniques. AI, IoT, connected services and autonomous systems together enable farmers to make decisions at the level of a single square metre […]
By Jordan Turner Beta Analytic Introduction Natural product testing provides R&D teams and manufacturers with validation that their products are made with natural-sourced ingredients. Carbon-14 levels are measured to determine what percentage of an ingredient or product is naturally sourced and to identify the presence of petrochemical-derived adulterants. Substantiation of “natural” claims on product labeling […]
The UAE, Jordan, and the Netherlands presented the inaugural edition of the Water-Food-Energy (WFE) Summit.

The EU Green Deal sets a target for 25% of agricultural land to be organic by 2030. Meeting this ambitious goal demands continuous research and innovation in sustainable food production. The CORE Organic Cofund is helping to drive this transition by increasing cooperation between international research activities.
Researchers supported by the EU-funded GRACED project are developing a novel sensor that could significantly improve food safety monitoring in Europe. The ultrasensitive photonics sensor will be able to reliably detect microscopic traces of harmful chemicals and bacteria on fruit and vegetables within minutes. Monitoring these foods is usually costly and time-consuming. When random batches […]
The European Food Safety Authority’s (EFSA) scientists have completed their comprehensive safety assessment of sugars in the diet and their potential links to health problems. The findings will support national public health authorities in Europe in updating future advice for their consumers.
A team of scientists from Nanyang Technological University, Singapore (NTU Singapore) and Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, US, has developed a ‘smart’ food packaging material that is biodegradable, sustainable and kills microbes that are harmful to humans. It could also extend the shelf-life of fresh fruit by two to three days.
