FoodProFuture aims to develop a knowledge platform for turning raw materials from plants into tasty, healthy and attractive food products full of protein. Our research shall enable the Norwegian food industry to produce high quality and sustainable plant-based alternative food products. We provide a path for accelerating adaptation and value creation from future food products.
The project is hosted by The Norwegian University of Life Sciences, Department of Plant Sciences.
