Institute of Food and Beverage Innovation - ILGI
«Delicious, healthy, safe and sustainable food. This is the guiding principle on which both our education and training programmes, and our research and development are based. We see our practical orientation and transdiscipline as fundamental to our strength in innovation.»
"We understand food" - this holistic approach guides our institute.
We observe all developments relevant to food in society, the economy, technology and nature. We focus on ‘managing the making of better food and beverages’ in teaching, research, further education and services - in close cooperation with companies, institutions and authorities.
The main focus of the institute is thus on the application-oriented control and optimization of manufacturing processes. The aim is to develop products and solutions that optimally satisfy people's nutritional needs. Our mission is to produce ‘better’ food and beverages that are delicious, healthy, safe and sustainable from the raw material to the consumer.
