NIZO celebrates it’s 75 years anniversary this year!

Our story starts in 1948 with a small facility in Hoorn. NIZO was founded in 1948 by the Dutch dairy industries as a cooperative initiative in fundamental research, and process and product development. In 1953, NIZO moved to a custom-built site with laboratory and test production facilities in Ede. Both the industrial founders as well as NIZO strongly believed, and still do, that research would only be relevant if scientists knew the products and could implement their knowledge on factory scale at the NIZO facilities.

Since the beginning, we have had been on an incredible journey. We have contributed to several developments and processes in the food industry, which are still used worldwide. And we have extended the development of innovative technologies in dairy applications to food and health applications.

Nowadays, NIZO is one of the most renowned contract research organisations for better food and health in the world. Because of our 75 years of heritage in the food industry, we can have a holistic view and successful and sustainable products can be created. We bring together experts in many different areas of food science and production including: protein technology, fermentation, bioinformatics, health and microbiome, food processing, food safety and sensory experiences of food.

To celebrate our 75th anniversary, we reflect on a history filled with remarkable milestones and look forward to a future just as bright. This year, we will celebrate this milestone in our history and hope you will join us in doing so!

We will keep you informed about activities and events for our 75th anniversary!
