Deutschland-Nederland Food Pro.tec.ts

Food Pro.tec.ts

The INTERREG V A project Food Pro-tec-ts was developed to create and practically test high-class technological innovations in the Dutch-German agricultural and food sector. Modern society expects food to be produced and offered sustainably, regionally and in high quality. Under this guideline, entrepreneurs and scientists from both countries have worked together with great success over the past four years.

All technological products resulting from this project were, on the one hand, precisely geared to the requirements of regional SMEs. On the other hand, they are intended to help secure and, if possible, further expand existing competitive advantages of the entire region in comparison to other locations worldwide. The project partners also want to make their personal contribution to the progress of the so-called agricultural turnaround.

The thematic focus was primarily on the following aspects:

– Expanding consumer protection in the area of food safety
– Testing sustainable processes for cleaning and disinfection
– Reduction of water and food waste within the production process
– Improving animal welfare and animal health
– New ways of transforming biomass into valuable products
