Partner in the following EIT Food projects

FRAUNHOFER
Innovation

Constituent sensing of small grains

Additionally, food safety requires the full traceability of crop constituents in the complete food value chain

FRAUNHOFER
Innovation

Digital Twin Management

An additional advantage is the possible reduction of unnecessary waste

FRAUNHOFER
Innovation

OLEOGELS – healthy and sustainable replacement for saturated fat and palm oil in spreads

Their base fat systems show a great potential for optimization regarding their nutritional and sustainability value

FRAUNHOFER
Innovation

Consumer and Manufacturing Driven Alternative Packaging Solutions from Agrifood Waste Streams

Suitable materials for meat, fish & poultry have constraints such as the need for an oxygen barrier & stability at higher temperatures, so wide-scale use of alternatives has so far been low

FRAUNHOFER
Innovation

Pressure for healthier and more natural fat-based foods (underPRESSURE)

underPRESSURE project will scale-up a technological solution for producing “high” viscosity fat-based products addressing these consumer demands

FRAUNHOFER
Innovation

The development of organic supply chains that drive fair, transparent and healthy options for the consumer

On a global basis the amount of fraud occurring in the organic supply system is growing rapidly and issues are appearing on a weekly basis
