Working together for the future#
Our work encompasses five business fields: Food, Packaging, Product Performance, Processing Machinery, and Recycling and Environment. We not only tackle current challenges but also put attention on topics of the future such as the bioeconomy, circular economy, and digitalization.
For example, we develop high-quality foods and packaging materials from renewable raw materials and waste materials. These products meet the highest sensory requirements. New technical applications and intelligent digital solutions ensure trouble-free machine processing and minimize the environmental impact. With regard to the efficient use of resources, we also develop innovative recycling processes and convert recyclates back into high-quality materials.
As an institute of the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft we are part of the largest applied research organization in Europe. We employ some 300 people at the Fraunhofer IVV locations in Freising und Dresden.
Our expertise is also sought after outside the food and packaging industries. We endeavor to find customized solutions for a whole range of challenges and to take these through to commercialization. All of our customers greatly value our expertise.
