DFPI – Redefining the Food Landscape

Food innovations are of increasing importance, as current production systems are unable to meet the twin requirements of feeding an increasing world population and doing so in a sustainable manner. Digital food production and processing technologies are an important source of innovation in this respect. With its unique combined expertise under one roof, the Digital Food Processing Initiative (DFPI) supports industry, research and authorities with knowledge on food and high-tech systems. This enables ideas to be more easily translated into market-ripe products.

What we do

DFPI is a cooperative venture between Wageningen University & Research, TNO and Eindhoven University of Technology. We provide companies with insights into all sorts of possibilities, including co-development, ‘living labs’, proof-of-concepts and (national or international) consortium projects. Companies can find out what these new technologies offer and draw up business cases with experts, allowing them to be at the forefront of a radical redefinition of the way we view, produce and process food.
