The Food4Sustainability (F4S) CoLAB is a collaborative laboratory located in Portugal that aims to solve large-scale problems in biological food systems (e.g. feed, fish, algae, vegetables) for climate resilience. F4S CoLAB is at the forefront of the shift from linear agrifood production processes to circular processes. The objective of F4S CoLAB is to test and implement new approaches in food production systems that have a positive impact: CO2 mitigation, non-use of chemicals, sustainable intensification (maximization of land use), preservation of water and environmental impact, and increasing efficiency in the food sector value chain.
