DEMO 3 applies the business models into a micro-farm in the production process of vegetables on the island of St. Martin’s (Isles of Scilly, UK) which will be launched in Spring 2020, running until the end of the year. New products will be tested during the demo: organic apple juice and cider. On sustainable consumption, the demo will include the ecolabel which won the CIRC4Life Design Challenge that will indicate the environmental impact of the product, as well as trialling new biodegradable packaging. This value will be calculated using the Farm Carbon Calculator tool and the Life-cycle analysis. Scilly Organics will also examine how waste can be further sorted at the microfarm and better recycled, in particular with regards to farm plastics. In addition, support will be provided to a local pub in order to reduce food waste.
