Food Production Technology

With solid process engineering expertise, we work with design of resource-efficient food production lines. This expertise also includes the testbeds: Pilot Production of Food and Cleaning Innovation. Our most prominent competences are our ability to: by extrusion recombinate food Components; understand the complex interplay between equipment and food, and; our ability and capacity to design and produce prototype foods in enough quantity for further development.

Within this expertise we handle:

Food processing design

  • Flexible, scalable and modular manufacturing lines
  • Process intensification
  • Extrusion - Recombination of separated food components
  • Digitalization (Industry 4.0/Smart manufacturing)
  • Hygienic plant and processes

Technical Aspects on food processing resource efficiency

  • Energy and water
  • Processing time
  • Raw materials

Maintenance for safe food processing

  • Efficient process- and plant-cleaning (CIP and COP)
  • Benchmarking

Pilot food production

  • Bread
  • Meat product and Plant-based meat product
  • Dairy product and Plant-based dairy product
  • Seafood
  • Vegetables and general plant-based product
