This project proposes to combine the experience and knowledge of both researchers and SMEs to fulfil the following objective:

  • analyse the implementation of organic certification systems and
  • estimate all relevant expenditures or transaction costs for different certification systems along the organic food supply chain in various regions of the EU, including a candidate country and Switzerland.

The project will run for three years and is funded under the European Commission's 7th research framework programme with 2.7 million Euros.
