EIT Food accelerates innovation to build a future-fit food system that produces healthy and sustainable food for all.

Community news and insights

The world’s largest and most dynamic food innovation community

We create connections right across the food system that stimulate new ideas and innovations to drive change: between startups and corporates; between food entrepreneurs and investors; between consumers and industry; between research and action; between ideas and reality; between present and future.

Our focus for impact

Supported by the EU, we invest in projects, organisations and individuals that share our goals for a healthy and sustainable food system.

Our innovation projects are delivered with a combination of industry, education and research partners to improve environmental and health outcomes by developing solutions in the most promising food innovation areas:

Protein Diversification

We are developing and adopting diversified protein-based solutions, which are healthy, sustainable, safe and affordable.

Circular Food Systems

We are encouraging the shift from linear to circular, sustainable food systems, in which resources are reused, nutrients recycled, by-products reduced and what remains is reutilised.

Digital Traceability

We are supporting technologies that make it easier to digitalise traceability. This can improve the safety, efficiency and sustainability of food.

Sustainable Agriculture

We are supporting European farmers in meeting sustainability requirements by co-creating climate-neutral, fair, resilient and economically viable agricultural practices.

Sustainable Aquaculture

We are transforming the aquaculture sector by reducing its carbon footprint, transitioning to circular economy, and ensuring food security and safety.

Targeted Nutrition

We are supporting the development of a personalised approach to nutritional products and dietary guidance to create behavioural change towards more healthy and tailored diets.

Join the community

We connect stakeholders right across the food system to drive change through collective learning, problem solving and invention.
