TNO, FBR look for project partners

partnership-links-personal-connections-12349063TNO, the Dutch organisation for applied scientific research, and Wageningen UR Food & Biobased Research (FBR), who operate in the field of applied research for sustainable innovations in healthy food, fresh food chains and bio-based products, are looking for partners to join a project on improving the healthy composition of foods.  The project is said to offer a unique opportunity for the food industry to benefit from the government co-financed collaboration.

TNO says that, in this project, sharing learnings across product categories will allow all partners to benefit in their own product development strategies and marketing approaches towards different target groups such adolescents and elders.

Within the project food products are reformulated to meet consumers’ requirements in terms of healthier composition, without compromising the required quality characteristics, TNO notes, saying that, in this project, the two organisations will work to improve the healthy composition of individual products by reformulation or by creating new innovative alternatives.

Parties can join the research program which starts before summer 2015, and is expected to go on for two years.

The key objectives of the project are:

  • Make it easier to create every day food products with desired characteristics combining health with great taste for intended consumer groups.
  • Create design and (re)formulation rules for product groups with healthier composition and attractive sensory perception by consumers.
  • Deliver generic quantitative relations between food ingredients, processing, food properties, external modulators and food perception.

TNO says that, in this project, sharing learnings across product categories will allow all partners to benefit in their own product development strategies and marketing approaches towards different target groups such adolescents and elders.
