LI Food – the Lower Saxony Food Initiative – combines competences and know-how in every field of the food industry for the whole federal state of Lower Saxony

The Initiative sees itself as an interdisciplinary and cross-technological competence network with great market and  application orientation. Its aim is to mobilize and develop Lower Saxon innovation potentials. The target is to facilitate innovative, environmentally friendly and sustainable.

The network bundles the competences in the agriculture and food industry within Lower Saxony and encourages synergies between the participating organisations. Among those networked under the LI Food umbrella are scientific establishments, production and marketing enterprises, service industries, banks, educational institutes etc. The greatest strengths of the network are its actuality, knowledge-transfer possibilities and the presentation of services. It comes into its own in servicing thematic forums, company meetings, exhibitions or thematic working groups.
