Why FoodTech?

The demands on food production and development are currently enormous and will not become less relevant in the medium term due to demographic developments and the consequences of climate change. At the same time, the area of FoodTech is proving to be highly viral (e.g. urban farming, artificial meat production, food & health).

Both Bavaria and Israel have a strong agricultural sector and are confronted with the new demands on this area. A new FoodTech center is currently being built in the north of Israel, and Bavaria also has two modern and growing research centers in this field, the Weihenstephan and Kulmbach campuses.

We bring together

We are always open to good ideas: Biochemistry, food and agritech, e-government and e-commerce, smart logistics, energy - you name it.

At the same time, the food tech sector promises enormous economic potential. The Food Tech Innovation Hub is a network to identify challenges in the industry, highlight new trends in research and present concrete solutions from innovative entrepreneurs in both countries.

The German-Israeli Business Association and the Bavarian Research Alliance (BayFOR) have many years of experience in bringing companies, research institutes and public institutions together in a targeted manner. The food tech sector in particular needs close exchange in order to meet current challenges and provide the right answers.

The right partners


The cooperation with the Bavarian Research Alliance (BayFOR) enables even closer links between research and business - cooperation with scientific institutions and research-intensive facilities in Israel and support in bilateral projects with public partners. BayFOR is also available to you as a partner in the international funding landscape.
