New invention set to scan for contamination in milk much earlier in the process

New invention set to scan for contamination in milk much earlier in the process “The Revolutionary Real Time AgroFood Contaminant Screener” is the name of the project from Next Generation Sensors B.V. and CIED B.V.in the Netherlands. And the project aims to develop exactly that: A portable real time scanner for contamination [...]

DNA digitisation: Olive oil authenticity and traceability from field to bottle

DNA digitisation: Olive oil authenticity and traceability from field to bottle DNAblockchain aims to create a DNA traceability system from field to bottle for the olive oil industry to protect its integrity and quality. DNA profiles of both olive orchards (varietal geo-genetic map) and their produced extra virgin olive oil (EVOO) will [...]

A smart system for real-time monitoring of evaporation in wine aging

A smart system for real-time monitoring of evaporation in wine aging The objective of the “Libatio - Smart system for real-time monitoring of evaporation in wine aging” project is to digitise the wine aging stage, allowing winemakers to reduce losses derived from evaporation inside wooden barrels, reduce the risks associated with current [...]

Data-driven fermentation management will lift microbreweries

Data-driven fermentation management will lift microbreweries The goal of this project is to finalise the development of a data-driven fermentation management solution i.e. non-invasive Internet of Things solution to monitor and control fermentation in the beer industry. Currently in Europe, 9 out of 10 microbreweries do not have access to the right [...]

Smart sensors will reduce food waste in bread production

Smart sensors will reduce food waste in bread production Food waste is a gigantic and increasing problem in the developed countries and requires immediate action as this constitutes a massive loss of resources throughout the food production value chain. This project aims at constructing, testing and optimising a pilot process line to receive, handle and process bread waste.  This technology enables the bread sector to reduce food waste [...]

Digital Optimisation Intralogistics in the Meat Industry

Digital Optimisation Intralogistics in the Meat Industry German meat producer Richter Fleischwaren will start this digital optimisation project because of what they describe themselves as slow and incomplete flows. The company has to be digitised for a better resource efficiency and faster reactions to the market. As a result, Richter Fleischwaren has [...]

New cooking method will secure standardization at fine-dining quality

New cooking method will secure standardisation at fine-dining quality Veltio has developed a cooking process based on the principles of molecular gastronomy and a patent-protected device introducing a novel cooking method. The device cooks quickly and evenly across a food portion, achieving the desired balance between internal and external texture. The project [...]

Complex process and product characterisation in real time

Complex process and product characterisation in real time A strong IoT platform with integrated advanced sensing technologies could predict the key factors for standardising and improving performance in food production. This is the objective that Glaücor is working towards. The ReTi-PC project aims to create a real-time platform for monitoring the operation [...]
