ILVO press release - Thursday, September 13, 2018

ILVO exhibits FOOD and AGROTECHNICAL INNOVATIONS at the tech trade show SUPERNOVA

Weekend of 29 and 30 September 2018, in het Eilandje in Antwerp, Belgium.
ILVO has no less than three stands about food innovations – from farm to fork!

ILVO has three stands: two typical Food Pilot demonstrations, where machine builders, lab workers and nutrition specialists team up to make food more sustainable. And a story about the Internet of Things, which will change the entire food production chain.

  • Discover how the dairy lab at ILVO uses the latest detection technology to identify the kind of milk in your mozzarella cheese. Was it really buffalo milk...?
  • Learn about the wealth in our Flemish fruit. Which antioxidants do you find in which apple varieties, and above all, how much of them will still end up in your juice after pressing?
  • Climb into the tractor "version 4.0" and high-tech sprayer. In combination with a drone, they see and decide to within a half square meter how much to spray. An inspiring case in which big data and smart farming makes the farmer work more precisely and more economically. Just imagine how much these "smart farmers" will spare the environment!
