Unilever partners with TNO to improve health

Unilever has teamed up with independent research organisation, TNO, to explore the links between diet and health.

The three-year partnership will be funded by the Dutch government’s Food and Nutrition Delta innovation program.

TNO Quality of Life Niek Snoeij welcomed the three-year partnership.

“TNO is thrilled to be working with Unilever,” Mr Snoeij said. “It gives us the ability to stay ahead with our innovative research approach and understanding of the relationship between diet and health.

TNO expert in nutrigenomics Ben van Ommen said: “The subsidy from the government stressed the need for new knowledge and groundbreaking solutions to improve health.”

The Netherlands Metabolomics Centre will also contribute to this partnership through the provision of their data-analytical expertise.
