food industry findings
Food industry findings
  • Processors are in need of more product launch and market access support from the Centres.
  • Looking for expertise throughout the entire commercialization process.
  • Medium and large companies looking for partners to assist them with new technology advancement.
  • New product runs and experimentation could be handled more cost effectively at a food Centre rather than interrupting processing schedules.
foodtech objectives
