Workshop by HighTech Europe at iFOO D2011 in Osnabrück, Germany, 11 October 2011

A sustainable food and feed production in Europe and worldwide is one of the big challenges of the present time. In this regard sustainable means

  • An ecologically sound use of natural resources
  • A food production that satisfies the needs of society and consumer
    (natural, tasty and healthy food)
  • A competitive framework for companies of the agro-food chain.

Research, development and innovation are the driving forces for a sustainable agriculture, forestry and food industry. This idea is expressed by the term knowledge-based bio-economy (KBBE). And food is the most important product of the KBBE in Europe. The European food industry generates with 965 billion € nearly half of the annual turnover of all industries which are pooled in the KBBE area.

The workshop takes up the aspects of a sustainable food production and illustrates scientific approaches and examples of novel technologies to meet the requirements of society and consumer to produce healthy food of high quality.
