Research and development

Research and innovation are the key to "being more competitive against our competition", which will allow us to stay in the market and grow.

We support the R&D departments of companies in the definition and development of R&D&I projects, report writing, logistics and coordination of trials, analysis and evaluation of results.

We also develop our own Research and Innovation projects.

Marisa Peña interview in Fresh Plaza

I am convinced that the 21st century is going to be the century of the development of fungi as biofactoriesAlthough they are usually available in the vegetable section of stores and supermarkets, we should recall that fungi belong to a biological kingdom separate from plants, one of the five different kingdoms in which living organisms can be classified based on their evolutionary kinship. The...
