Design and print your personal snacks

A project funded by Tekes aims to develop advanced food manufacturing technologies by combining material science and 3D printing technology. The result could be snack vending machines that provide personal products on demand.

Consumers expect healthy, nutritious food with added elements such as design and pleasure. 3D printing technology will enable the layer-by-layer manufacture of various structures, from crispy to soft gels that produce a distinctive mouthfeel. The 3D food printing is an emerging and developing technology, with a great deal of active research ongoing.

The project is coordinated by VTT in collaboration with the Aalto University.
