Quoting Linda Szommerné Egyed, the managing director of Fino-Food Kft., they wrote: “the dairy products most loved by Hungarians were further developed” in the three-year program, which was mainly implemented with EU funding. Thanks to the cooperation, Trappist cheese was enriched with vitamin D, lysine and porcini mushrooms, and natural and fruit yogurts, as well as cream cheese, were also produced – the company manager indicated, adding that the new dairy products serve as a “real energy and immune-boosting bomb” for health.

A valuable development

As they wrote, the development in Kaposvár based on robot technology and precision farming is also of particular importance from the point of view of food safety, and in accordance with the “field to table approach”, it affects the entire product chain, from feed production to cow milking technology to milk processing. As part of the project, a milking robot barn was set up on the Kaposvár campus, feeding experiments were conducted, and the investments made it possible for students to get to know the most modern technologies used in animal husbandry up close. According to Csaba Gyuricza, rector of MATE, the project symbolizes the most important objective of the university, which is to develop education in close cooperation with corporate partners in order to adapt it to market and social needs. “Thanks to this, we have doubled the amount of resources spent on research and development programs from HUF 20 billion to HUF 40 billion,” said the rector.
