Special crops and the raw materials derived from them provide sustainable and new luxury to our life. Crop systems need to be redesigned so that circular economy and biodiversity are taken into account. At the same time soil fertility, carbon sequestration and biodiversity should be improved. The production of different plant-derived raw materials will enhance bio-based business possibilities. In developing on-farm upgrading methods, it is possible to integrate farms into the value chain and reform their traditional role in the production of raw materials. Plant-based products can be recycled as well.

At the seminar, the results from the PeltoLuksus – Crops4Luxury project, coordinated by the Natural Resources Institute and funded by Sitra, on the value chain and the formation of new luxury from quinoa, caraway and woad will be presented.

The seminar is  free of charge and its held in Finnish.
Registration required by 31.8.2019.
