Know more how we are pushing forward the knowledge to unleash the acorn potential.
The Acorn4MED project was supported by the ”la Caixa” Foundation through the third contest of the Promove Program, aimed at boosting the border regions of the interior of Portugal.
LandFood aims to value acorns as a nutritious, gluten-free and sustainable raw material for the agri-food industry, helping to ensure the economic competitiveness of the endemic forest of the Alentejo. Through the establishment of a value chain that bridges the landowners, industrials and restaurants, LandFood is promoting the economic return to the region. Our strategy enhances a Forest2Fork concept while reusing lignocellulosic processing residues, thus fostering the circular bioeconomy and the sustainability of the food chain.
