Today’s agri-food value chains have come under considerable pressure in recent years. Nevertheless, this highlights opportunities for innovative new business models, products and services.

Given the challenges facing the agri-food ecosystem, the overall aim of the B-Resilient project is to empower food-producing and processing SMEs (FP² SMEs) to become more resilient.

B-Resilient will link the agri-food ecosystem to key sectors working with bio-based ingredients, with the aim of stimulating cross-sector fertilization in the search for new products to meet customer demand.


It contributes to strengthening resilience and accelerating the dual transition (green and digital) through six specific objectives:
o Networking to improve the resilience of EU industrial ecosystems by developing value chain interconnections in the EU single market.
o Adopt processes and technologies to reinforce the transformation towards a greener, more digital economy.
o Train to upgrade and retrain the workforce, while attracting talent.
o Internationalize to gain access to global supply and value chains.
o Raise awareness to attract economic players, mainly SMEs, beyond Eurocluster sites.

Finally, the B-Resilient project has defined an ambitious set of support actions to enable SMEs in food processing to become more resilient through optimal use of biomass and appropriate digital solutions. The project will focus on maximizing the use of available raw materials and their subsequent valorization in secondary streams into innovative biobased ingredients. The B-Resilient project is built on a zero waste and circular concept, improving the competitiveness of food processing SMEs in an ecologically sustainable perspective.

Budgets are available to help companies make this transition. Please do not hesitate to contact for more info!
