The world is changing, and so are the demands on food. We want to feed more people and use our planet’s resources more sparingly. This requires mild & smart technologies that are more sustainable and affordable to optimally process raw materials into healthier, less processed food. Technologies that require less raw materials, less energy, less water, less heat, improve food safety, and extend shelf life without altering the taste and nutritious substances. Without waste, healthy food for everyone!
Our test facilities on lab, pilot, and production scale are managed by top industry experts with direct links to universities and technology providers. In collaboration with partners, we offer the option to use test facilities. From small tests from a couple of hours or a day to small production runs. This way the most likely problems when scaling up are the past when being production ready!
Normally we follow 3 basic steps:
The Field Lab Total Use No Waste is located at Food Tech Brainport in Helmond (The Netherlands). The aim of this field lab is to inform food processing companies in North West Europe and bring them together with technology providers of flexible automation (robotization and cobotization). Another goal is to show food processing companies what is possible, but also what is not possible with cobots (robots that can work with humans) and other digital automation. The field lab has various setups with Cobots, Robots and other digital automations. Specifically focused on food and the total use of raw material, in an actual food production area.
Food Tech Brainport has an extensive network of food processing companies, research organizations, schools, technology providers, and public partners. The ultimate goal is to “make a sustainable change by enabling food processing technologies”. We are here to make food processing companies more effective, support technology providers accelerating their market launch, and develop food processing talents!
