The food and health paradigm have become a benchmark for innovation for the food industry. Born as such in the 80s in Japan, it has been imposed at an increasing rate in almost every corner of the planet. All large companies in the food sector are actively investigating these issues with some unusual approaches to date for the food industry. Clinical trials, microbiome analysis, nutrigenomics and personalized nutrition are new terms that have joined the cultural heritage of innovation in these companies. Neither the European Union in general and our country in particular have remained outside this situation. In this symposium, several public groups and private companies will present their new developments in these issues. All of them are leaders in food biotechnology.
