Eslöv wants to create a center for the food industry.
The municipal Working Committee agreed this week on a membership in the Organization Knowledge Innovation Community (KIC), Skånskan reports.
Through membership Eslöv hopes to be able to access EU-funding to create the center. The idea of such a center is to stimulate the work of scientists and entrepreneurs to develop new products that can be produced which in turn strengthens sustainable food production in Skåne in Sweden.
Many large processing companies are present in Eslöv, like Orkla Foods Sweden, Örtofta sugar and Kavli. There are also several rising newcomers in the industry. Many companies in the engineering industry are also working against the food industry.
KIC Öresund have had meetings with landowners and representatives of the food industry in Eslöv. Similar KIC nodes are in countries like France, Italy, UK and Holland / Belgium.
