We are also your emergency contact if you experience supply shortages of an important ingredient or are in need of an alternative due to price fluctuations of a certain raw material.
Our Current Research Projects
GLi Product Safety
Innov8 is testing various innovative decontamination techniques for herbs and spices, reducing microbiological risks by maintaining product quality.
Partner of the FFoQSI
FFoQSI (Feed and Food Quality, Safety and Innovation) is Austria's leading research and innovation centre for natural resources and bio-based technologies, with four research centres, seven university institutes and 18 technology-oriented companies.
In this project, Innov8 focuses on the use and utilisation of lucerne and its components. A new combined production process is being developed for functional fractions/ingredients with applications in food production, nutraceutical products, mineral and vitamin extracts, biodegradable packaging material and biofuels.
LIFE / I-SAFE
Innov8 is developing an innovative production process for a new plant-based protein source. This is to meet the growing demand for sustainable and environmentally friendly products to feed 10 billion people in 2050. The ultimate goal is not only the extraction of the protein fraction, but also the complete utilisation of the entire plant.
