Natural Products and Food - Research and Analysis (NatuRA) University of Antwerp
Department of Food Technology, Safety and Health Ghent University
Technology and Food Science Research Institute for Agriculture, Fisheries and Food
This unit comprises three research areas (Agricultural Engineering, Food Safety and Product Quality and Innovation). Technical, mathematical and IT methods support mechanization and automation in production. We study the safety (microbiological and chemical) and quality of all types of foodstuffs. We develop methods to detect GMOs and allergens and to determine authenticity. We seek new functions and valorization of food products.

Food and Microbial Technology (CLMT) KU Leuven
Research topics of this unit are:
• Physical methods for microbial inactivation
• Natural antimicrobial components
• Microbial stress response and stress resistance
• New techniques for food preservation
Food Safety Research Institute for Agriculture, Fisheries and Food
Here we study the microbiological and chemical safety of food products along the entire production chain. We test analytical methods for detecting zoonotic pathogens, spoilage organisms and veterinary drug residues, and research control and remedial measures. We also study cleaning and disinfection, antibiotic resistance, virulence and/or persistence of pathogens and spoilage organisms, migration from packaging, and mycotoxins.
Research Institute for Agriculture, Fisheries and Food Research Institute for Agriculture, Fisheries and Food
The Institute for Agricultural and Fisheries Research (ILVO) performs multidisciplinary, innovative and independent research aimed at economically, ecologically and socially sustainable agriculture and fisheries. Through this research, ILVO accumulates fundamental and applied knowledge which is vital for the improvement of products and production methods for quality control and the safety of end products, and for the amelioration of policy ...
Product Quality and Innovation Research Institute for Agriculture, Fisheries and Food
Optimal processing of primary agricultural products (plant and animal) into quality food, feed and non-food products is our focus, particularly dairy, meat and fish products, ready-made meals, vegetables and fruits. We study quality improvement, authenticity, nutritional and functional properties, taste, nutrition and health, detection of GMOs and allergens, valorization of secondary flows and new applications from plant biotechnology.
