NovelBaltic

The Baltic sea areas are full of NTFP. Several of these products are seen as very valuable, among others, in the Asian market. But close relationships with the cultivated species as well as misleading marketing of origin leads to risk of scams. In order to preserve food security and the quality stamp of the raw material, manufacturers and processors have a need for simple authentication methods to ensure genuine goods.
