Food Traceability & Safety Technology Center

Metropolia University of Applied Sciences research and development unit Electria completed the Food Traceability & Safety Technology project. The project established a new food safety technology cluster with showroom operation, piloting, and testing. The 2,5-year EAKR-funded project started in August 2011.

This project was a part of the larger ‘Elintarviketurvallisuusosaaminen vientituotteeksi’ (Food Safety know-how as an export) project, with Helsinki Business & Science Park, Vantaa Innovation Institute, University of Helsinki/Palmenia and University of Turku.
