The SFI works towards a sustainable food industry. To achieve our moonshot in 2050 we introduced a new, innovative and interdisciplinary way of working. Instead of a linear innovation process we deliberately choose to work simultaneously on different challenges. The first hurdles to be faced are formulated as targets for 2025:
- We will develop a new generation of food processing technology in 2025, that enables a decrease in footprint (water, greenhouse gases) of 50% whilst preserving the inherent goodness of the agricultural raw materials.
- We will have created routes in 2025, to reduce waste production by 50 %, enable more than 95% high-value use of agricultural raw materials, and to ensure full circularity of packaging materials.
- Using modern approaches from the field of data sciences, we will be able in 2025 to handle at least 90% of the available raw materials and raw materials qualities (specs plus 30 % variation).
