Creating the food of the future
Food and drink affect everyone. It could be said that food is the first priority for every person in every country in the world. We are all affected, but in very different ways. That is why research and innovation in the food sector is crucial and why SIK is endeavouring to remain a key player in this field.
The SIK research and innovation strategies have been developed in close collaboration with SIK's member companies. All member companies have been contacted and the response has been processed in collaboration with the SIK Industrial Committee.
