Fields of action
In Lower Saxony, the food industry is the 2nd largest sector after the automotive industry. A large number of small and medium enterprises characterize the industry and build the backbone of this important sector. Due to limited margin, investments in research and development fields are clearly below one percent of sales, especially for smaller companies. Through the active networking of business, research, politics and society, LI Food tries to accompany the industry in facing the challenges in the five fields of action and to support them with various activities. The key to a successful development of the food industry in Lower Saxony lies in target-oriented innovations.
