Resumen:
Una start-up francesa del sector agroalimentario está desarrollando una nueva tecnología de secado de hierbas culinarias que consume menos energía e incluye la creación de valor de subproductos actuales. Esta tecnología permite elaborar ingredientes deshidratados de alta calidad conservando las propiedades organolépticas y aumentando la seguridad de los alimentos. El proceso también se utiliza para secar hierbas medicinales, vegetales, flores, algas, etc. La empresa busca socios interesados en participar en un proyecto de investigación en la acción piloto "Vía rápida a la innovación" o Eurostars 2. El objetivo es evaluar la tecnología a escala industrial. Se buscan proveedores de hierbas/semillas, fabricantes de máquinas de secado y usuarios finales de productos alimenticios con el fin de completar el consorcio.

H2020 - FTI1 - Pilot or EUROSTARS 2 : partners sought in herb drying / food end users to develop new technology to dry culinary herbs
Summary:
A French start-up in the field of agrifood is developing a new drying technology for culinary herbs using less energy and including value-creation of actual by-product. The company is looking for partners for a research cooperation project under the Fast Track to Innovation Pilot scheme (or alternatively Eurostars 2) in order to assess the technology at an industrial scale. Herb/seed supplier, drying machines producer, food product end-users are sought to make up the project consortium.
Description:
This start-up based on the know-how of an existing company has developed a disruptive technology which allows to elaborate high quality dehydrated ingredients preserving organoleptic properties and increasing food safety.
This process could also be able to dry other leafy raw material such as medicinal herbs, vegetables, flowers, algae...

Feasibility lab tests have been conducted which allowed to design the main steps of the process. The technology now needs to be assessed before being scaled up at industrial scale.

The idea is to build an efficient consortium starting by working with herb or seed supplier. Then, the drying technology and final products will be developed and validated with help of machine manufacturers, technical and research center. The involvement of end-users such as flavor house or food manufacturers (interesting on the technology or dried ingredients) is the key element to access worldwide market.

Project would start by the construction of a pilot machine and the assessment of different varieties and mix of herbs to produce various ranges (preferably clean label ingredients). At the same time, quality control test (aromas, microbiology...) will be set up in order to validate the technology and filed a patent. End-users could also start working with the product prototype AND/OR the technology during this phase.
Finally, the construction of industrial machine is planned for the last phase.

The SME is aiming at the new FTI pilot scheme (H2020 - FTI1 - Pilot) open call targeting the first cut-off deadline on 29 April 2015 as it is industry driven and designed for light consortia and therefore appropriate to conduct this R&D project with mostly industrial partners. This is the main choice.

As an alternative, the SME could consider also the the Eurostars 2 scheme Cut off #4 on 17 September 2015 which is rather targeting R&D performing SMEs but also suitable for other industrial partner.

Deadline for EOI : 4 april 2015
Advantages and Innovations:
- Less energy uses
- No waste thanks to efficient uses of raw material
- Preserve organoleptic properties
- New level of food safety
Stage of Development:
Under development/lab tested

Partner sought

Partner Sought:
- Research or technical centre (public or private) specialised on food dehydration AND/OR culinary herbs (behaviour, aromas, production...) AND/OR conservation/preservation of dried product AND/OR food safety... Role : to perform quality control, flavouring and other properties preservation in order to assess the drying technology - Culinary herbs (fresh/frozen) AND/OR seeds suppliers Role : to provide high quality products for testing purposes - Machine manufacturer (lab, pilot or industrial scale) preferably specialised in washing in food industry (such as fruit and vegetables washing) AND/OR drying technologies AND/OR lamination processes... Role : development of a pilot drying machine to conduct the experiment - End-users such as flavour house, spice house, formulator, food processors interesting by the machine or dried ingredients. Role : to validate the end-products in different types of food products applications / markets
