Future Food Utrecht

Future Food Utrecht offers a platform for scientists and external stakeholders on which they contribute to the transition of the food chain for a sustainable world, by means of unique transdisciplinary research and education. The search is for catalysts of change; small interventions with big effects. Our ambition is to strive for diets that are both good for the planet as for all its inhabitants. Our research focuses on four complementary themes:

  • Nature Inspired Food Production
  • Food Fairness
  • Immune Resilience 
  • Social & cultural change of food behavior
