Global developments such as climate change, rural exodus or scarcity of resources present the food industry with major challenges – only responsible, rapid and above all sustainable action can guarantee security of supply for all. For this reason, numerous initiatives and companies have committed themselves to better food for a better world. The Anuga Horizon 2050 provides an overview of the status quo and shows innovative, future-proof solutions.
EIT Food, improving food together
EIT Food is Europe’s leading agrifood innovation initiative, with the aim to create a sustainable and future-proof food sector.
The initiative is made up of a consortium of key industry players, start-ups, research centres and universities from across Europe. It is one of eight Innovation Communities established by the European Institute for Innovation & Technology (EIT), an independent EU body set up in 2008 to drive innovation and entrepreneurship across Europe.
EIT Food aims to collaborate closely with consumers to develop new knowledge and technology-based products and services that will ultimately deliver a healthier and more sustainable lifestyle for all European citizens.
EIT Food has created the RisingFoodStars Association, which serves as an umbrella for high potential agrifood startups and scaleups, to support and nurture a select group of young companies. The Association is a partner of EIT Food and as such allows its members to participate in all EIT Food activities, thus contributing to the delivery of EIT Food’s strategic objectives.
