There is a lot of expertise in food processing, microbiology, chemistry, physics, engineering and consumer and material science. It is important to encourage collaborations and synergies to move the field of food science and technology as a whole forward. Therefore, EFFoST would like to provide an overview of the current food related research projects in Europe and also share project developments and research results on our news page.


If you would like to add your research project to this page and share your news and developments with food professionals throughout Europe, please email
