NIZO food research

We see fast and radically changing consumer demands. René Floris is as Division Manager Food leading a group of NIZO experts in the fields of protein and food research. NIZO offers development and pilot production of innovative new food products to help to meet these changing demands. This enables him to be involved in state of the art food research. He, and his team translate this research to food applications delivering real solutions for customers. René: “amid all this change, one age-old fact of food production remains: if it doesn’t look, feel and, above all, taste right, it won’t sell”. René obtained his PhD at the University of Amsterdam in protein chemistry and enzymology. Applied protein technology is where his scientific passion lies, with 10 patents and more than 60 peer-reviewed papers he is very active in his field. Quote: ”The positive effects of food, and food ingredients, on consumers fascinate me”
