A shared ambition

Great-tasting food with substantially reduced sugar and salt content, fat-free products with a soft, creamy texture, substances that mimic calorie restriction and the mechanisms behind the beneficial effects of probiotics. These are just a few of the recent innovations and discoveries that originated from TI Food and Nutrition’s precompetitive research.

High-impact innovation
Today’s challenges in food and nutrition, including the food chain, require innovative answers to a range of fundamental questions. TI Food and Nutrition brings together industry, science and government with a shared ambition to provide the knowledge base needed for high-impact innovation in food and nutrition. We also address the question of how partners in the food chain can improve food-system efficiency and reduce food waste.

'TI Food and Nutrition's research belongs to the best in the world. It generates scientific discoveries of value and importance to it's industry partners.'
Cees 't Hart CEO at Friesland Campina
Fundamental strategic research

Economic growth
TI Food and Nutrition is one of the major public-private partnerships within the Top sector Agri&Food, which is one of the nine Innovation Areas defined by the Dutch Ministry of Economic Affairs as key for economic growth and investment.
