As an industry which places innovation at the forefront, FoodDrinkEurope and its members are interested in science-based research and development, including the application of nanotechnologies and their potential in food production. Nanotechnology in the food industry is at an early stage and, in the future, it could be used to deliver new food products and improve existing ones. It also has potential in processing and packaging, bringing benefits to consumers and industry. Safety comes first and the use of these new technologies will always be based on scientific research, regulatory compliance and consumer acceptance.


In order to track the latest developments, FoodDrinkEurope regularly reviews publications (reports and studies) on nanotechnology relevant to the food and drink industry. This ranges from reports on dialogue on responsible research and development to the emerging challenges surrounding the technology:

Key reports will be added shortly
