What we do
EIT Food West wants to revolutionize the current food sector into a healthy, sustainable and transparent system.
We are all connected to the food we eat, and we believe that together we can bring about a change: with everyone who loves food and drink, with the large companies that offer food products, with the chefs that cook our meals, with start-ups who have innovative ideas, with the knowledge of universities, and with the local farmers who produce our food.
We bring all these parties together, and by organising workshops, events and social media campaigns we inspire you to join us in creating a healthy, sustainable and transparent food sector.
