In this COSME project, the four food clusters Wagralim (B), Vitagora (F), Valorial (F) and Food Valley NL (NL) will develop a joint internationalisation strategy, a smart strategy based on an original combination of various interconnected specializations. Together we aim to enhance the competitiveness of the SMEs in the clusters, to encourage the development of emerging industries in Europe and to access emerging markets more easily.

Three complementary value chains that represent great opportunities of growth for member companies at an international level have been defined:

  1. the market of connected food;
  2. the market of functional food and healthy ingredients;
  3. the market of processed food products.

Mission: serving and exploiting major societal challenges of Europe 2020 and Horizon 2020: the consumer wellness and health and the building of tomorrow’s economy. We will enable the members of our clusters to be stronger and more competitive in markets outside Europe.

SMEs interested in doing business outside Europe are invited to contact one of the project partners below.
