Within the “SOPHY” research project, software for food quality and hygiene management is being developed.

Nowadays, food producers must guarantee high standards with respect to the quality and hygiene of their products. On top of everything, consumers are increasingly demanding “healthy” products. Especially for small and medium-sized enterprises, fulfilling this demand is a major challenge. The aim of the “SOPHY” research project is to make this task easier by developing a prediction system.
