Helmond is a city with a distinctive identity that has grown through hard work. The canal as a lifeline and the old metal and textile industry as a former beating heart. The city’s past is still visible in the city that today is fighting for the future. From the perspective of developing opportunities, the municipality of Helmond stimulates dynamics on 3 economic spearheads, including Food Technology. The aim is to strengthen cooperation between the business community, education and knowledge institutions towards a clean, agile and future-oriented industry.
The goal of the municipality of Helmond is to enable new innovations and to translate ideas to the market. Preventing waste and promoting healthy food. And as with all policy areas, we ensure that the plans are in line with sustainability, health and employment.
The Municipality of Helmond enables us, together with the Province of Noord-Brabant, to grow into an independent organization in the coming years. It does this through a financial contribution. The core values and policy of the municipality of Helmond make it possible for Food Tech Brainport to help entrepreneurs move forward and to seize opportunities when it comes to sustainable and healthy food. All this in order to achieve a future-proof food processing industry in the future.
