That's what it's about

Sustainablity tastes smart

We love animals. Especially in our food. This causes climatic tubulences due to the costly keeping and production of animal foods .We make sustainability tasty for you.

Technology eats with us

Tracking down and preserving edibles is a driving force for technological innovation. FOODPRINT presents historical findings and juxtaposes them with current innovation and research projects: from robots that harvest tomatoes to packaging material made from algae and "faked meat".

Hungry for knowledge?

The heart of the exhibition is the tasteLAB. In this interactive mediation area, we'll serve you some unusual taste challenges, such as chocolate made from insects. Snack on a few stories about cultivated plants, herbs or read with us from the coffee grounds of climate-friendly alternatives.

In cooperation

FOODPRINTS is part of a European cooperation between the Technical Museum Vienna, the Parque de las Ciencias in Granada and the DASA Dortmund. The aim is to promote international exchange and sustainable museum practice, while focusing on the themes of sustainability and innovation in terms of content.
