Vegetable pilot plant
In Nofima's vegetable pilot plant, our customers can try out new processes and products on a small scale. The pilot plant is in close proximity to the pilot plant for packaging, storeroom and all our research laboratories.
This means we have a unique opportunity to follow a product through production, packing and storage and to analyse the product for sensory, microbiological and health quality right through the process.
The vegetable pilot plant contains equipment for
- Washing and peeling vegetables
- Cutting and mixing vegetables
- Heat treatment of vegetables, potatoes, fruit and berries
- Production of juice, jellies and jam
