Wat is Food Pilot?
De Food Pilot is een pilootfabriek die de innovatie van de Vlaamse Agro-Food industrie moet ondersteunen. Ze biedt aan bedrijven uit de Agro-Food sector de mogelijkheid om nieuwe concepten of producten te testen alvorens ze op industriële schaal te produceren.
The Ghent company ROOF FOOD has the ambition to share its own concept and experience of professional vegetable growing on flat roofs. ILVO is partner in this project, which aims to develop a blueprint for promoters who want to get started with the concept.
