Agriculture is an important sector in the Alps, but too often by-products do not find adequate valorisation. AlpBioEco works to increase the sustainability of the apple, walnut and herbs value chains while identifying opportunities and paths for innovation.

From the initial 440 new product and service ideas, the 26 most promising ones have been made into eco-innovative business models, 7 of which have then been pilot tested. These pilot projects and the lessons learnt by testing them unlock new competitive advantages for small and medium-sized enterprises in the Alpine food value chain.
