Research and development services for the agrofood industry

The Italian company provides support activities focused on the requalification of the agro food industry, offering research and development services, to promote innovation and sustainable growth of small and medium-sized companies. In this regard, the company offers:
- Scientific advice for research and development projects.
- Scientific evaluation for feasibility studies and business plans.
Agro industry By-products valorization:
Agro-food process chains generate lots of by-products. The valorization of by-products is a key objective for the company in order to reduce the use of new resources and follow the eco-sustainability principles. Properly processed and treated by-products can act as raw material to produce high value materials as functional ingredients, bio-based building blocks and bioactive molecules that can be used in several applications. The innovative use of ?waste? products is the main goal, following circular economy principles.
Innovative use of traditional and emerging matrices:
By means of biotechnologies, it aims to retrain the potential of natural resources, re-evaluating raw materials and by-products from different value chains. Thanks to biotechnology applications, traditional matrices can be transformed into bioactive molecules or innovative substrates for agro-food needs. Moreover, these new matrices are promising alternatives to fossil resources in order to obtain biopolymers and fibers.
Food safety:
The increasing interest in human and environmental health motivates the team to find innovative biotechnological solutions to ensure safety throughout the production chain, both in food and feed industries. This is possible through the continuous detection and follow-up of chemical and biological contaminants, from raw material to end products.
