Meet the New Frontiers in Food – Fast Forward (NF4) project at Seeds&Chips 2018, the Food Innovation Summit in Milano Italy that will take place from 7-10 May 2018. From the NF4-projectteam Jeroen Wouters, Director International at Food Valley NL, will be present during May 7th and 8th of the event. SME companies with international ambitions outside of Europe (Brazil, Canada, China, USA) in innovation collaboration as well as market entry can be in contact at the Food Valley NL booth in the Holland lounge. Also participants from countries outside of Europe can reach out to find out what opportunities for collaboration could be.
Also more can be learned about the topic of specialized nutrition, one of the key value chains of the NF4-project. A specific session entitled “Food&Health; the future of nutrition” will take place on May 7th from 16.30-18.00 PM with Jeroen Wouters as one of the speakers. The growing demand for personalization has implications for both the food system and health services, as technological innovations and big data change the way we eat as well as the way we think about our well being. Food and health are intertwined, and with the emergence of food products that are not only sustainable but also tailored to individual dietary needs, the possibilities for the future of nutrition are endless.
