Project summary: 

As no effective system of traceability and marketing of organic beef had been established in Slovenia, a significant part of the organically produced beef was being processed and sold as conventional meat. By introducing new decentralised digital technologies into the organic food supply chain, the project aimed to create an effective traceability system that ensured greater data integrity and transparency of the entire supply chain from farm to fork in the organic beef sector.

Project results: 


  • Agricultural holdings that use this model will be able to sell their meat in the chain as organic, for which they will receive a better payment.
  • The system will create new opportunities for the development of business models based on the production and sale of organic meat and thus better conditions for marketing.
  • The project will contribute to greater capacity of agricultural holdings and consultants to capitalise on the digitalisation of agriculture. The data collected will be used by the Slovenian Agricultural Advisory Service.
