Ecotrophologists (a term used mainly in Germany) are concerned with nutrition, household management and economics. This includes physiological, economic and technological principles of healthy nutrition and practical application. 

They work in many different fields: development of new nutritional concepts, quality control in food manufacturing and processing operations and research within the food industry. Due to the interdisciplinary nature of the training, ecotrophologists often take a coordinating role in Facility Management companies.
