EIT Food is Europe’s leading food innovation initiative, working to make the food system more sustainable, healthy, and trusted. To achieve such a transformation, many new products, services, business models and processes need to be brought to market to systemically change the complex and interwoven structures. We need to produce more food using fewer resources, need more sustainable methods to guarantee food that is high quality in terms of safety and nutritional aspects, and there needs to be more emphasis on food sustainability.
EIT Food's mission is to transform the way food is produced, distributed, and consumed and increase its value to European society by solving the biggest innovation challenges through trusted partners from industry, education and research in collaboration with informed and engaged citizens. Innovation and technological solutions play a central role in this, which is one supporting pillar of EIT Food to transform the food system.
