Start industrial production 3D-printed food

Gastronology is one of the first companies in the world to start with the industrial production of 3D-printed food; Partner and contract producer Budelfood B.V. in Poortvliet is going to produce the 3D printed food on industrial scale.   

In April 2024 the first production batches were delivered under the brand name 'Dysphalicious' to healthcare institutions and hospitals. They will gain experience with the application of the 3D-printed food to clients with dysphagia (chewing and swallowing problems). 

Gastronology has the ambition to expand capacity in the coming years: from the current 700 kilos per day to 2500 kilos per day, so that even more people with chewing and swallowing problems can enjoy healthy and nutritious food that looks attractive and tasty.

The current 3D food range of Dysphalicous consists of: carrot, beetroot, cauliflower, broccoli, peas, sweet potato, potato and haricot verts. This range will continue to expand in the future.
