As we know, the potato is a versatile fellow which can be utilized in a number of ways. But can we also utilize the entire potato plant? We can make better use of potato peels, stalks and other waste by using technologies that both reduce food waste, have a low environmental impact and provide healthier and more tasteful foods.
Teaming up with key industry and market players, iNOBox main goal is to integrate in the Norwegian food industry more efficient, profitable and sustainable processing, securing the supply of safe, high-quality and nutritious foods.
The aim of the project is to increase the competitiveness of Norwegian berry production and berry industry through well suited, new cultivars of strawberries and raspberries for processing and fresh market.
The project documented effects on food safety with less salt used in the processing.
When fish and shellfish is to be sold fresh, frozen, salted, dried or smoked, knowledge is required on how the raw material best preserves its properties and optimum quality. Nofima has extensive experience with the traditional methods of processing fish and seafood.
In our facility we offer the best solutions to develop and test new ingredients and feeds. We have extensive knowledge in technology and raw materials, and highly skilled scientists.
Our scientists gain knowledge about how we can improve the quality of seafood, how the raw materials can be handled and used optimally, and how the fishing industry can increase the value of its products.
Knowledge about factors that influence the quality of raw materials is required in order to produce food of stable high quality. Our scientists have expertise in understanding raw material variation, efficient production processes, rapid and precise measurement techniques and statistical process control and optimisation.
Healthy food that tastes good and is easy to prepare – this is what consumers want. Nofima is working with technologies and storage methods to ensure safe food that maintains a high quality for as long as possible.
