Fraunhofer Agriculture and Food Industry Alliance

Innovative solutions for the food industry 

Climate change and dwindling resources, supply chain uncertainty and rising food prices — these all pose major challenges for the global food industry. But at the same time, Germany is transforming its food sector to make it more sustainable. To meet these complex challenges, 13 Fraunhofer institutes have joined forces to find solutions along the entire value chain in the food industry. These solutions range from innovative approaches, such as in the areas of agriculture, product protection and analytics, food and logistics, to new processing technologies and developments that support sustainability and the circular economy. 

The Fraunhofer Agriculture and Food Industry Alliance is based on decades of collaboration. Thirteen Fraunhofer institutes, all of which are part of the Fraunhofer network, have bundled their expertise under the umbrella of the Fraunhofer Agriculture and Food Industry Alliance. With its unique scientific infrastructure and interdisciplinary expertise, the alliance is helping its customers to develop solutions for a sustainable food industry.
