CHANCE, or “Low cost technologies and traditional ingredients for the production of affordable, nutritionally correct foods improving health in population groups at risk of poverty” is a project funded under the European Commission’s 7th Framework Programme, which aims at studying these factors closer. Based on the findings, CHANCE explores ingredients and raw materials that may be used for production of food products to address the identified nutritional problems – food products that will be both affordable and attractive to the identified target populations.
CHANCE EU project aims at adopting a new multidisciplinary approach, leading to nutritional strategies for the prevention of malnutrition in population groups at risk of poverty in Europe. Moreover, it aims at the development of attractive, affordable and nutritious food products using low-cost technologies and traditional ingredients.
CHANCE EU project specific objectives are the following:
a) Identification of nutritional criticalities & barriers to healthy eating
b) Selection of ingredients & raw materials for new food prototypes
c) Production of "CHANCE food" prototypes
d) Development of "CHANCE foods"
CEN Workshop Agreement
The outcomes of CHANCE EU Project will be used as basis for the development of the CEN Workshop Agreement in line with the dissemination aims and transfer of technology of the EU Project. In this sense, the CWA would be an instrument to inform a wider group of potentially interested parties about the results of the EU Project, in terms of methodology, nutritional researches carried out, food raw ingredients studied and food prototypes developed, and also in relation to the possibility of optimising the technologies used to produce "CHANCE food" in conjunction with the traditional processing technologies already at place.
CEN Workshop Status
The kick-off meeting took place on 5 April 2013 at the CEN and CENELEC Management Centre in Brussels.
