Launch & Inspirational session
It is our pleasure to announce the launch and first inspirational session of the new public private partnership Next Food Collective. Next Food Collective is a joining of forces of four organisations: Top Institute Food and Nutrition (TiFN), Sustainable Food Initiative (SFI),
Carbohydrate Competence Center (CCC) and Protein Competence Center (PCC).

The mission of Next Food Collective is to accelerate the pace of sustainable and healthy food innovation. Bringing together multinationals, small and medium size enterprises and knowledge institutes, Next Food Collective will provide a new impulse to public-private partnerships in the agri-food domain. This new collaboration will enable its participants to translate sustainable and healthy
food innovations more efficiently to products, services and/or policies and will coordinate large national and international funding applications.

On Tuesday 23rd of May 2023, Marjan Geluk and Gerda Verburg of Next Food Collective will officially launch the initiative during its first inspiration session on the topic of ‘Sustainable Food Chains’. Speakers of Innocent Drinks, GEA Group and LIDL Netherlands will share best practices on how to work together in creating a sustainable food chain. Please see the full programme below.

The inspirational session will be broadcasted live from The Blender, the new Innocent Drinks Location, one of the first carbon neutral factories, located in the Port of Rotterdam.
