Incorporate technology into a food-safe work environment

General objectives 

Partly driven by Industry 4.0 (automation, robotization and digitization), this concept aims to facilitate activities through which new (disruptive) technologies and scientific breakthroughs can be translated into applications that raise the food safety and hygiene status of a food company to a higher level. lifting. Potential technologies include whole genome sequencing, (bio)sensors, artificial intelligence, blockchain, process validation and more.  

Within the food company, the future applications can be applied at the level of R&D, quality and operational activities. In addition, these applications can be used in both preventive and reactive ways. They can also ensure that the value chain is sufficiently transparent, and the food product is authentic. 

Expected results 

  • Authentic and high-quality food products that are top in terms of food safety and quality.
