Reports On Agri-Food Innovation
We prepare and share our reports focusing on agri-food innovation scene, providing the key information for the future of food systems.
Kök Projekt’s Agri-Food Innovation Reports
Waste to Value IV: Waste & Circular Economy
We take resources from nature and turn them into an extraordinary number of products. Then, when we do not need them, we throw them away as waste. This system based on Take-Make-Waste is called the “Linear Economy.” It has a significant impact on the environment as it creates mounting pressure on natural resources and a massive waste problem. Linear Economy is not sustainable.
For a healthy future, we need to look beyond the take-make-waste system and create a Circular Economy that relies on renewable energy and eradicates waste.
For more information about how a circular economy can mitigate the waste problem? check out our report!
Waste To Value III: E-Waste
Electrical and Electronic Equipment(EEE) is an indispensable part of modern societies. Technologies may help to create a fairer, more peaceful and just world when used appropriately. However, the rising demand for EEE is creating the world’s fastest growing waste stream:E-Waste, which can be hazardous for the environment and human health. How does e-waste impact the environment? How can technology help to tackle this global issue? Check out our report to find out more.
Waste To Value II: Plastic Waste
Plastics are versatile materials that offer many advantages for our daily lives. However, the way we use them is incredibly wasteful. Cumulative global plastic production reached 7 billion tonnes in 2015 and generated huge waste. How plastic waste impacts the environment? How can technology help to tackle this global issue? Check out our report to find out more.
Waste to value I: Food Waste
Food waste and loss are global problems. Every year 1,3 billion tonnes of food is lost or wasted. How do food loss and waste impact the environment? How can technology help to tackle this global issue? Check out our report to find out more.
How does water pollution impact our lives? What is the relationship between agriculture and water pollution? Is agriculture really a victim and cause of water pollution? How water pollution finds its place in UN Sustainable Development Goals? Check out our report to find answers.

Blockchain and Agriculture
Transforming the food ecosystem with blockchain. Blockchain may bring many advantages to today’s complex food supply web by providing transparency and trust. Check out our report for blockchain and agriculture practices.
Adaptation of FAW Sectors
Adaptation of FAW Sectors: The Effects of the Pandemic On the FAW Sectors. The spread of Covid-19 affects all industries. We’ve also wondered how it is affecting the food, agriculture, and water sectors and gathered some news from all around the world.
Healthy Eating: Consumer interest in healthy eating is growing worldwide. Forecasting emerging trends’ impact on eating habits in the era of fast-flowing life. Check out our report.
Organic Agriculture: Sustainability and agriculture. Farming without using chemicals. Chemicals used in agriculture damage soil and water resources. One of the ways to continue production without chemicals is organic agriculture. Check out our report for organic farming and its advantages.
Vertical Agriculture: Methods of future agriculture. Healthy, sustainable methods of farming are becoming increasingly important for nurturing the growing world population. Vertical agriculture enables high output production in places with low agricultural land by using various technologies. To find out more click our report.
Precision Agriculture: Agriculture of the future. Precision farming uses big data, advanced analytical processes, robots, and sensors in order to make appropriate decisions. It increases efficiency. Check out our report on how to increase efficiency with the use of technology.
Smart Agriculture: Reshaping the agricultural world with technology. Smart Agriculture also is known as Digital agriculture, e-agriculture or Agriculture 4.0 not only creates economical potential but also ecological benefits. Find out more about Smart Agriculture in our report.
Algae Based Protein
Algae Based Protein: Sustainability, a diet rich in protein, and algae. Algae may be among the potential sources of protein. Check out our report on the nutritional position and environmental benefits of algae.
Insect Protein: One of the alternative sources of protein are insects. Click on our report for the use of insects as food, fertilizer and more.
Plant Based Protein
Plant-Based Protein: Alternative, sustainable protein sources. With the increasing population in the world, the need for food is increasing. One of the methods to meet food needs sustainably is plant-based nutrition. You can find the benefits and more of plant-based protein sources in our report.
Lab-Grown Meat: Produce the protein of the future. Lab-Grown Meat, also called Cell-Based Meat, Clean Meat, aims to provide a sustainable solution to the increasing meat demand in the world. You can find start-up examples working in this area and more in our report.
