Bringing together the food industry through innovation and entrepreneurship

The EEIG ECOTROPHELIA EUROPE is a European Economic Interest Grouping that aims to unite stakeholders from different Member States together around a common objective, bringing together food industry actors from seven different countries to promote innovation and entrepreneurship in the European food industry through the development and implementation of innovative programmes.


  • Promote the cooperation and exchanges between SMEs and universities, research institutes, and public and private bodies involved in food innovation.
  • Define policies, organise the European ECOTROPHELIA EUROPE competition and promote participation in the Competition and its results.
  • Promote excellent education programmes linked to food innovation.
  • Increase awareness and spreading information, particularly to students and young entrepreneurs.

It is in this context that ECOTROPHELIA, carried by the EEIG, has become a Food Innovation Laboratory.


The members of the EEIG ECOTROPHELIA EUROPE are trade unions from seven European countries representing the interests of national food companies, the European Union food industries: ANIA - France, FEVIA -Belgium, FIAB - Spain, SEVT - Greece, CCIS- CAFE - Slovenia, FII - Iceland, LVA - Austria and FoodDrinkEurope.
