The 21st century biological science and entrepreneurship meet in the Center of Food and Fermentation Technologies (CFFT). CFFT is an R&D company based on extensive use of modern analytical methods, systems biology and synthetic biology principles, aiming at development and introduction of innovative food and fermentation technologies.
Currently the centre has a state-of-the-art laboratory, highly qualified personnel and necessary know–how. The centre deals with research projects of biotechnology as well as food technology. Biotechnology and food technology based R&D are very closely related in CFFT via the use of so–called ‘omics’ methods and in-depth knowledge and understanding of molecules and their behaviour.
