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. In order to accelerate and facilitate the application of 3D food printing processes in the food industry, we want to assist a group of leading food industrial partners to define use- and business cases using 3D printing, along with gaining initial practical experiments based on WFBR state of the art 3D printing facilities.
