Foodvalley; the food innovation hotspot

The Wageningen Campus and the surrounding Foodvalley region in the Netherlands boast countless companies and research institutions like the Wageningen University & Research, working at the forefront of protein-transition technologies. This hub of knowledge and experience forms a solid platform for expanding the export of products, concepts and technologies developed with partners in the Netherlands.

The Future Protein Day gave (foreign) companies a feel of what this innovative hotspot offers. During this fully-packed day, several companies got informed about the collaboration opportunities with the Wageningen Campus and University, the agri-food accelerator StartLife and the hosting partners: Foodvalley NL and Oost NL. After a lunch tour on the campus, the participants followed in-depth sessions of the contract research organization NIZO and Wageningen Food & Biobased Research on alternative proteins. The day's closing included network drinks, in which several front-running companies within the ecosystem were invited for a pitch and drinks to discuss collaboration opportunities.
