Health SnaP

Health SnaP

The purpose of this activity is to support healthy eating by developing a new food manufacturing technology and B2C business concept for at-site customized production of healthy snacks. 

The idea is based on integration of ingredient and instant food manufacturing technologies combined with smart user-interface to support individual choices. Co-creation with consumers (testing and evaluating with mock-ups and finally studying real prototypes with consumers) is in an important role in the activity, and consumers will be involved in both the development phase (analysing the concept and mock-up studies, year 2019 work), and the in real-life environment studies (testing with a real prototypes, year 2020 work).
