> The principal objective will be to increase the consumer confidence in
 in the safety protection of the food supply traceability would like to
 present a program on FOOD TRACEABILITY

The request of the FP-6 R&D Program on FOOD TRACEABILITY are the

–      “Traceability” processes all along the production chain The
objective is to strengthen the scientific and technological basis for
ensuring complete traceability for instance of genetically modified
organisms, including those based on recent biotechnology developments
from raw material origin to purchased food products, and thereby
increase consumer confidence in the food supply.
Research will focus on: development, validation and harmonization of
technologies and methodologies to ensure complete traceability
throughout the food chain; scale-up, implementation and validation of
methods in whole food chains; assurance of authenticity; validity of
labeling; application of HACCP to the whole food chain."

> Research studies and best practices diffusion on  critical point in
safe promotion and environmental protection management  with a
particular attention to the following issues: assurance of authenticity
of declared origins ; validity of labeling ;  biotechnological  tools
in  HACCP to the food Chain utilization; to ensure the exclusion of
specified  high-risk and condemned materials from the food chain, and to
guarantee  the separation between biological products and GMO products
in the  global market.
> As a matter of facts the LRE-EGO-CreaNET of the University of Florence
 ,  would like to enlarge the partnership up to six  European countries
with about  12  partners and to extend the collaboration as "stakeolders
network" to the <TRACE-FOOD> program at international level.

- The Tuscany Region will get the opportunity to cover about the 25% //
