Why a network about meat?

Muscle Based Food Network was established in February 2013 as a new network for all with an interest in muscle based foods (meat and fish) and technology related areas.

Our mission is to contribute to renewed acceleration of research and innovation within meat, fish and technology related areas. Also, we want to provide YOU with the best access to knowledge, insights and opportunities. We aim to be a key networking and inspirational epicenter of the muscle based foods area.


  • 2 thematic events a year with lectures, debates, demonstrations or other activities
  • Professional networking, new contacts and new inspiration.
  • Direct access to cooperation with research and development.
  • An improved flow of knowledge between research institutes and the industry.

Who can join the network?

EVERYONE, who shares our interest in research and innovation within muscle based foods (meat and fish) can join the network.
