Exploring Healthy Food Concepts – Product and process development in the field of healthy food and ingredients
Healthy food for a healthy living – this is one of the dominant market trends. Both countries have identified processing and product concepts for health and wellbeing as major opportunity for the food sector. Germany provides an excellent technology-based R&D, while Australia has outstanding product development and consumer science. The overall idea is to evaluate partnerships on business level in combination with the applied research of Fraunhofer and researchers from Australia aiming towards developments of healthy food deriving from agricultural products and side-streams. We intend to set up an innovation cluster concept to facilitate collaboration and to increase competitiveness.
