Welcome to organic taste - ECROPOLIS

The scientific project ECROPOLIS started in January 2009 and will last about three years. The project deals with sensory properties of organic food. The main aim of ECROPOLIS is to collect data about sensory profiles from organic products all over Europe in an interactive online data base (OSIS). Consumer research, regulatory affairs and dissemination will also be included in the project.
The Research Institute of Organic Agriculture (FiBL) in Switzerland coordinates the work of the different project partners.
Partners from France, Germany, Italy, Poland, Switzerland, and The Netherlands are involved in the research activity. In each country a research partner, a SME-Association and a SME is taking part in the project.
On the following sites you will find more information about the project, tasks and aims, project partners and work packages.
