Institute of Food Technology (ILM)

The Institute of Food Technology (ILM) places particular value on research with a direct application and cooperates closely with the Department of Horticulture and Food Technology. The teaching on the food technology degree programme is imbued with knowledge and experience from this research.

The Freising-Weihenstephan science campus brings together the skills of the various specialisms relevant to food. In research and teaching, all of the subject areas are covered from raw material production through processing to marketing. Combining interdisciplinary networking with a strong relationship to the practical world, you will find the ideal conditions here for successful research and development.

Food Startup Incubator Weihenstephan (FSIWS)

With its unique infrastructure, the Food Startup Incubator Weihenstephan (FSIWS) at the Institute for Food Technology offers the perfect product development location for innovative foodstuffs and packaging. There are a large number of pilot systems, from laboratory-scale testing, to production on a small industrial scale for liquid and solid foodstuffs, to safe product packaging. An interdisciplinary team of food experts from the field of engineering and business economics and marketing experts support the food start-ups by offering individual coaching and workshops on how to establish a successful business. Food start-ups are supported through further training opportunities (webinars and workshops) on the topic of business economics and food production.
