STLO missions are:
- To develop public research expertise on the components of milk and eggs by exploring their structure, functionalities, and digestibility, in their native state or after various processes.
- To increase the quality and safety of fermented dairy products and ovoproducts: investigate the in situ expression of bacteria and explore their biodiversity.
- To train students, masters or PhD students and contribute to their future recruitment in academic or private food research centres.
