Flanders’ FOOD, the spearhead cluster and innovation platform for the Flemish agri-food industry

With the support of:

Combined brand VLAIO & Flanders' FOOD (new 2023)

Flanders’ FOOD is the innovation platform for the Flemish agri-food industry. Together with our members – businesses, research institutes, organisations and federations – we make up the agri-food spearhead cluster, the network for innovation in the agri-food industry.  


We support food companies in initiating, developing and implementing innovations in food products, production systems and new business concepts. A very full plate! Collaborating is in our DNA and with help from the right partners and research institutes we provide you with valuable information and/or financing to make your innovations a success.  


"Trends and novelties are approaching from all sides. At exhibitions, trough newsletters, on the internet, in magazines,... But it takes a lot of effort and time to follow up on all these channels. Luckily this work is done by Flanders' FOOD, they summarize all the highlights at their events."

Koen De Wilde, Volys


"It's crazy how the pieces of the puzzle fall together, and how a wild idea can sometimes quickly become tangible."

Leo Borms, La Confiance
