Mission/Objectives: 

The purpose of the association is to promote and develop the food industry by involving companies in the three core areas of agricultural processes, production and distribution/transportation/logistics as well as universities, research institutions and other organisations involved in the promotion of the food industry.

These objectives shall be accomplished mainly through the creation of synergies. Synergies are e.g. created through a tigth network; common workshops, training, theme-related events, commodity teams and through visiting member enterprises.

All in all it is our mission to connect food concerned enterprises in the Rhine-Neckar metropolitan region and to visualise the actors as well as discovering hidden champions.
