Our cluster is a dynamic system. With its campaigns and projects, the cluster offers you a platform on which you can network with like-minded people, find new business partners, make contacts to industry and science and much more. Do you have your own project ideas or suggestions for innovative products? The Food Cluster will support you in your plans, project management, marketing and professional realisation. As a branch cluster, we want to promote exchange, pool competencies and bring together the various branch areas for joint projects.

The Food Cluster also has a strong network on an international level which we use for the concerns and requirements of companies in the agricultural and food industry. Whether international trade fair presentations, trips abroad or providing contacts to companies abroad – we find the right contact partner. Likewise, we also forward enquiries from abroad to competent partners in Bavaria.
