The food supply chain is under increasing pressure as a result of rapid and dynamic changes in the environment, technology, consumer behavior, policy making and climate, particularly in terms of effectively managing food security, food surplus, food loss and food waste. These developments have detrimental impacts on the food industry supply chain. One of the main problems of the food industry is the lack of rapid flow of information exchange between the different stages of the supply chain, which are often categorically fragmented even though they are tightly interconnected. 

The four stages of the supply chain are production, processing, distribution and consumption. The FOOD CHASE project aims to develop a reference framework at European Union level for vocational skills related to the reduction of food loss and food waste in the food industry. Within the project, the learning outcomes of the FOOD CHASE Competence Framework will be used for the creation of curricula that will create the innovative professional figure of the Farm to Fork Expert. The knowledge and experience acquired by this professional figure will then be used to renew the knowledge in each ecosystem and partner country, thus ensuring sustainability and circularity of the model.
