For Innovation Services: technology scouting and technology transfer

During 30 years as a Research Organization for the agri-food sector, Tecnoalimenti has acquired a wide horizontal scientific knowledge, developed a peculiar sensitivity for technology (interdisciplinary, lateral thinking, creativity) and established a wide network of national and European contacts at top level. Tecnoalimenti is ready to provide this wealth of knowledge to support business innovation.

Food Defense is an advanced requirement of agri-food markets stemming from research. It is aimed to prevent and protect the brand from voluntary contamination and tampering or deliberate adulteration of food products. By July 27, 2019 all companies exporting food products to the United States will have to implement a Food Defense Plan. The adjustment to the American legislation on Food Defense (FSMA-IA) requires an innovative approach as compared to HACCP plans. The new keywords are Threats, Vulnerabilities and Mitigation. Tecnoalimenti designs Food Defense Plans using FDA tools and methodologies acquired thanks to the direct participation to the European EDEN project. We offer our qualified support for each of the following steps of the development of these Plans:

  • Identification of mitigation strategies
  • Definition of the monitoring procedures
  • Awareness training of staff
  • Implementation of the Food Defense Plan.
