Viljaklusterin Pilot Plant

The largest grain-based food industry cluster in Finland is located in Päijät-Häme. The cluster was established in 2003 and the members represent widely both farming industry, as well as the industrial production chain. The end product include a wide variety of food, beverages and health products.

Corona has influenced the willingness of retailers to introduce new products to their assortment. Retailing companies haveexpressed a particular willingness to adopt innovations after the pandemic and have asked companies to develop and prepare in the coming years for new types of modern product launches e.g. vegan products.

In this project, we start the process towards a full-scale platform. In a tight schedule, we pilot the processes, explore markets for new products, and develop a process for company and UAS co-operation for further and larger scale R&D and product development work. Also, the financial base for further and wider co-operation has to be investigated.
