Innovation in food and agriculture has come a long way in the past century, resulting in the production of more food than ever before. However, the food industry is facing new challenges due to rapid societal changes: in 2040 there will be 9 billion people to feed; there is an increasing demand for personalized, nutritious, and healthy food; and food production should be done in an affordable way without harming the environment. Radical innovations are required to meet the demands of the near future. 3D printing provides the food industry the opportunity to adapt and change their production processes.

3D food printing research program

In order to accelerate and facilitate the application of 3D food printing, TNO together with Wageningen University & Research and Eindhoven University of Technology, have joined forces to develop a comprehensive 3D food printing research program.
