The dynamics of the markets coupled with increasing competition place high demands on companies in the food, consumer goods and packaging industries. Increasingly complex issues under difficult conditions require flexible use of the available resources – inside and outside the company. In particular for interdisciplinary questions at the interfaces of the value chain, it is important to bundle the competencies of the companies involved and the associated research institutions. But the research expenditure for this is often too great for a company alone. This can prevent innovation issues from being taken up.
At this point the Industry Association for Food Technology and Packaging e. V. steps in by initiating and accompanying application-oriented and pre-competitive research projects – and has been doing so since 1964. The IVLV conducts research together and across the entire value chain for safely packaged food of high and long-lasting quality. In this way, the IVLV secures industry knowledge, educates and promotes junior staff and continuously creates new knowledge on questions from member companies.
