A New Name
The Fraunhofer Food Chain Management Alliance has a new name!
Since June 2021, we have become the "Fraunhofer Agriculture and Food Industry Alliance".
However, you will notice that not much has changed. You will still find us at the same address as before (www.fcm.fraunhofer.de) and from 2022 also at: www.food.fraunhofer.de.
What's behind it?
Since the foundation in 2008, our ambition was to offer solutions for questions in the entire food chain (Food Chain Management). The main areas of focus were food analysis/processing, microsystems technology and logistics.
But the world is changing and new challenges are emerging. Not only global warming, but also sustainable food production, digitalization in agriculture and new marketing models are playing an increasingly important role.
Therefore, we need to broaden our focus and no longer just see the individual food chain, but think much bigger and also include upstream and downstream areas such as agriculture or utilization networks.
