With the "Austrian Competence Center for Feed and Food Quality, Safety & Innovation" (FFoQSI) a COMET Competence Center has opened, which will contribute to promoting the food production chain in Austria. The terms Feed and Food make it clear that feed and food production are interlinked in content. The aim of the Competence Center FFoQSI is to make domestic feed and food production safer and more sustainable and to promote technological innovations. This also applies to the production routes and systems necessary for the production and processing of food. These are part of the so-called value-added chain, which begins with the cultivation of plants and extends from the processing to the packaging of feed and food.
