Barentz Food Ingredients, one of the leading players in the food industry, is already working on the spaghetti you will be eating in 2050. Foresight leads to insight, in the food industry as elswhere.

More and more people are keen to achieve a healthy lifestyle nowadays, and diet plays a vital role. Countless studies have been devoted

to the role our diet plays in causing or preventing medical conditions such as cardio-vascular disease, obesity or various forms of cancer. Various international bodies such as EFSA, the European Food Safety Authority, keep a watchful eye on our nutrition.
