Eco-friendly innovation of food production from the output of rice and grape supply chains.
The project studies the innovative ways of valorising the outputs from regional wine and rice value-chains. The aim is to demonstrate how the competitiveness of the companies involved can be improved thanks to the application of Systemic Design.
The Holistic Diagnosis of Piedmont, and in particular the wine and rice supply chains, has led to highlighting some currently under-valued waste. The innovative transformations implemented by the involved companies led to the production of new food products, as well as the design of packaging.
