Safer Food Delivery and distribution service during and after the COVID-19 Pandemic

SAFELIVERY will develop innovative food delivery services and protocols suited to reduce the risk of food surfaces and packaging contamination by COVID-19 virus, and other agents, during preparation and delivery of “Ready To Eat foods”. It will address safety gaps identified on the delivery chain of the RTE foods. This project will provide: i) enhanced HACCP protocols to manage/control risks related to potential human factors and delivery conditions ii) an univocal anti-tampering seals system recognizable through a mobile application iii) anti-tampering boxes with smart locks which can only be opened by a key code communicated to the final client iv) enhanced training package for food handlers and deliverers.
