In fall 2020, EQAsce has taken part in a competition for new concepts designed for the value-added chain for pork. The European Qualification Cooperative came up with an idea that does not exist in this branch up to now: The establishment of a cooperative platform for pig farmers. The aim is a better exchange of data and dataflows, more transparency, an improved (crisis-)management and fairer prices for farmers. In its concept, EQAsce has brought together running projects, ongoing initiatives, and already existing technologies for the first time. This effort has been recognized and commended and brought up the award for the innovative idea. The EQAsce-team will continue its work on the concept and seeks to develop it further within the EIP.NRW-Project GeTie.
