General information

The institute has a long-standing relationship with the food processing industry. We regularly train specialists, provide consultation services for enterprises and conduct scientific and applied research covering a broad spectrum of food-related issues.

Specific areas of emphasis in which we provide consultation and research support to the food processing industry include:

  • Food and food processing hygiene
  • Food safety
  • Functional foods and health-promoting additives
  • Experimental development of food products


Our most important areas of applied research are related to developing new food products. Since major clients and partners include milk and meat processing companies, our Microdairy and Meat laboratory are the primary structures that deal with the sector.

Different ways of cooperation can be used, whereas usually joint research and development projects are initiated. We invite you to contact the  institute to search for cooperation opportunities also in other food-related areas beside meat and dairy processing.
