Research Group Food chemistry and human nutrition

The Research group Food chemistry and human nutrition, led by professors De Meulenaar and Van Camp, is part of the Department Food Safety and Food Quality. Together, they aim to reduce food losses within the European project Veg-i-trade by developing statistical models to predict the degradation and the safety of fresh products. These models can then be used to improve the planning and logistics of food processors, transporters and supermarkets.
