When the industry is developing a process or a product, it may require additional resources that allow it to generate and validate samples on a small scale.
CNTA’s pilot plant is available to offer support to the industry in developing processes and products. It can also be a resource for food companies that are starting up, or that are assessing new formulations, packaging formats or processes.
The pilot plant has specialised equipment for the preservation process, pre-prepared and pre-cooked convenience food, bakery products, sterile packaging for liquid and semi-solid products, and other operations such as curing, high-pressure homogenising, vacuum cooking, extraction and purification, among others. We also have fully-trained multidisciplinary staff to assist any operations.

At CNTA we approach the generation of samples and prototypes in 2 steps. Depending on needs and objectives, they are addressed collectively or just those necessary.
CNTA has broad experience and knowledge in the generation of samples and prototypes. To carry this out we have:
Researchers and technicians specialising in: food science and technology, chemistry, biology, agronomic engineering and nutrition.
