About us

The easy-to-read articles in Taste of Science focus on innovation in a broad sense. Everything that can help food entrepreneurs survive in the increasingly competitive European food market. We also look to inspire you by sharing experiences of entrepreneurs who have successfully found ways to improve their business, or who have jumped into a gap in the market. Besides, we inform you about relevant workshops and events across Europe.
