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 instruments as a foundation for sector development and agricultural policy for rural areas. ILVO has four research units (Plant Sciences, Animal Sciences, Social Sciences and Technology and Food Science). The Technology and Food Science Unit conducts research beyond the farm gate, with a focus on food safety, product innovation and the Food Pilot, which is housed at ILVO. In Food Safety, the microbiological and chemical safety and quality of food products of animal and plant origin are studied. The Product Quality and Innovation research group focuses on the authenticity of animal and plant products, including GMOs and allergens, and the improvement of the functional quality and valorisation of foodstuffs.
