DIL Deutsches Institut für Lebensmitteltechnik e.V.



With around 150 member companies from the food industry ans related fields, the German Institute of Food Technologies (DIL) operates as a research institute working in the areas of product development, process development and analysis. Formung a bridge between science and practice, DIL supports its partners in the innovation process.




The development of technological innovations and a responsible handling of existing resources

can promote the preservation of the health of the people and the planet alike.

It is this belief on which the work of our institute is based.



DIL’s extension building opened in 2011. Not only has this development seen the institute grow in terms of 6,000 square meters of additional floor space, but the new building also plays a crucial role in research and development and in collaborative work with companies. In addition to the new test laboratory, which offers space to develop and test new technologies and has approval to operate as a food production establishment, DIL now also has expanded mechanical engineering facilities at its disposal. This means that innovative concepts can be directly put into practice thanks to a professional mechanical and electrical service division.

New capacities for analysis have been created with the new labs. Based on the possible options and the availability of commercial space, work began on the implementation of a “Business and Innovation Park Quakenbrück” (BIQ) in 2012. Since 2015, companies and entrepreneurs are being provided with the opportunity to locate at the BIQ site of approximately 2,700 square meters and benefit from the capacities available at DIL.
