"At Bühler we supply the food industry with technologies and equipment to process crops into the food products we love – bread, pasta, chocolate, coffee. However, as agriculture and food are responsible for 30% of greenhouse gases emissions, our innovation activity is focused on reducing energy, waste and water in our customers’ value chains by 50%, while rethinking the way food is produced. We drive these ambitions through multiple collaborations, like the ones we have established with EPFL Centers (SDSC, IFNC), laboratories and students. We have embedded our data scientists at the EPFL Innovation Park to work closely with the Swiss Data Science Center and develop our digital services. Our presence on campus also ensures the participation of 8-12 EPFL students in our internship program every year in support of our sustainable innovation goals."
