Design Methods in Food :
with methods more market succes for meaningful
innovations in agri-food

Food is Seduction
Food can be LOVELY and SEDUCTIVE , but with the abundant variety we become too
fat and the world can’t handle the waste (food, plastic and footprint).
We have to eat differently: more vegetables and more sustainable.
How, if we don’t really want to?
• Make meaningful innovations more seductive
• By research towards aspects of seduction and how we use the knowledge to create
• So that students and SME’s can use it to have more market succes with meaningfull
• So that consumers start choosing for healthy and sustainable not because they
have to but because it’s fun, tasty and swag/cool/trendy/hip/in.
What are …..Meaningful innovations in
• Meaningful for the consumer =
• Helping towards a healthy and sustainable
• De innovations in agri-food that need help,
because it is complex
• Human behaviour doesn’t change easily =>
make healthy & sustainable products more
meaningful innovations in agri-food
What are…Methods for seduction?
• Theory about:
– Cialdini about how to convince people
– Neuromarketing about hoe people make decisions (rational and irrational)
– Consumer research
• Seduction model: model to define the seduction of a product, from the perspective
of the consumer/user?
• => methode for scoring
• => low score means you have work to do!
CONCEPT Model: 7 factors of seduction
4. Product Quality

3D food printing
Making residual food flows more seductive with 3D food printing
– Why food waste ?
– From food waste to concepts from 3D food printer
Why Food Waste?
• 1/3 of our food = 4,4 miljard kg /year
1. cosmetic (too crooked/ too small / too large)
2. product may not be sold after THT date
3. Consumers buy too much
• 14% van totaal = 50 kg p.p. p.j. = Euro 155 pp
• 58% inspects products at THT, but 18% throws away without thinking
• What do YOU do?
Top 3 most wasted products:
3D food printing ?
• Puree of product (thick paste)
• Eat after printing
• Or conserve by:
– Drying, baking, frying, freezing etc
• Sanne Vonk, Chantal van der Noordt, Michiel
Lenders, Benjamin Verduijn
• Goal: Development of a new consumer friendly
vegetable concept using the 3DbyFlow Printer.
– Low vegetable intake
– Vegetables shouldn’t only be eaten during
– Low in calorie, high in vitamins
Ask your child what they wan’t to eat, let them draw it, take a picture and send it to
your printer using an App. The printer will use the vegetable ink to print the exact
drawing on your plate. That is how easy it will be in 2025.
Every household will have it’s own 3D Food Printer.
If that won’t let the kids eat,
Tested at an elementary school
Goal: Design a new food concept by upgrading residual food
flows with the use of a 3D food printer.
– Material, structure & taste
– Market/ user value

Yi Xing Bu Xing
In traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), there is a concept of "Yi Xing Bu Xing," which
means eating an animal organ to nourish the corresponding human organ. Based on
this concept, the masculinity of the male tiger has developed the phallic worship
centered on the "tiger penis" among people.

and preserving disappearing Asian medical heritage (ex: Traditional Chinese Medicine)
