MyToolBox (https://www.mytoolbox.eu/) – “Safe Food and Feed through an Integrated ToolBox for Mycotoxin Management” is a project which goes beyond the field-to-fork approach to reduce moulds and mycotoxins in the food and feed chains. A leading scientific endeavor linking European experts with their Chinese counterparts and reaching out to the rest of the World. MyToolBox Project has the potential to save tens of millions of Euros per annum in reduced crop losses, as well as achieve reductions in dietary exposure to mycotoxins, which is immeasurable in terms of benefits to human health.
