Ten R+D+i projects led by the food industry were presented at a conference organized by ANFACO-CECOPESCA, in collaboration with Xunta de Galicia, in which cases of business innovation success were exposed.

The presentation took place in the conference entitled "Technological Innovation in the Sea-Food sector", which was opened by Juan Vieites, ANFACO-CECOPESCA Secretary General.

The ten projects announced are framed in two major themes: Industry 4.0, focused on the promotion of automation and digitalization of industrial processes, and Blue Biotechnology, whose objectives are the use and recovery of by-products, the development of food with new functionalities and healthy properties, the search for market solutions for the exploitation of new species, and the optimal management of fisheries, among others.

All the projects address improvements in the products or industrial processes of the participating companies, and allow the development of new competitiveness and differentiation tools to face new national and international markets.

The first project presented was "VALBIOCEF - Strategies for the production of high added value bioactive and healthy products from the byproducts of cephalopod processing", from Cefrico SL. This project aims to value all the by-products generated in squid and cuttlefish processing, by exploiting the potential of their lipid, protein and carbohydrate components, to obtain food components or food supplements for human consumption, providing them with an important added value, derived from their biological and technological functionality.

The second project, "Cooperation with Scientific Organisms for the Improvement of the Commercialization of Surface Longline Species", led by the OPPC3 - Organization of Producers of Freezer Vessels for Hake, Cephalopods and Various Species, dealt with the performance of absorption studies and bioavailability of mercury and methyl mercury in vitro and live, and the study of the protective role of selenium in different fish species.

Next, the project "SATISFOOD - Development and Validation of Satisfying Foods through the integration of pre and post ingestive signals" was exposed, led by the company Carinsa. This project aims to develop satiating foods that improve the nutritional quality of the products.

Likewise, the company Aceites Abril, showed the advances developed in the DISMETASIN project, related to the industrial development of foods aimed at reducing the incidence of pathology linked to the metabolic syndrome.

In the second block of the day, six more projects were presented, starting with "SF4SF - Plant integration of emerging technology for the detection, elimination and management of food risks", led by Clavo Congelados SA. This project addresses the development and integration in the plant management systems, of faster, more sensitive and sustainable technology for the detection, elimination and management of microbial risks and allergens in the plant in order to increase the efficiency and productive performance.

The project "ROBICOS - Conservation techniques optimized for robotization of packaging lines of pelagic species", presented and led by Conservas Selectas de Galicia SL, faces the robotization of the sardine packing line as well as the development of freezing techniques and defrosting, which makes it possible to obtain throughout the year, canned products with the highest quality and the minimum variability in the process.

Then, in the project "HOLOPLUS - Innovative actions for the consolidation of the international exploitation of sea cucumber", the Cooperative of Fishing Shipowners of the Port of Vigo (ARVI) exposed the innovative developments carried out in order to consolidate the exploitation and international marketing of sea cucumber.

Likewise, the Mixed Unit "FFF4P- FUTURE FOOD FACTORY 4P" was exposed by the managing director of the company Emenasa Industria y Automatismo SA, who explained that the Mixed Unit seeks the development of demonstrators of new competitive food engineering solutions in three big lines: connected factory, advanced robotics and individualized production.

On the other hand, the European project "EnhanceMicroAlgae - High added-value industrial opportunities for microalgae in the Atlantic Area" was presented by the head of the division of Health, Nutrition and Farmaindustria of ANFACO-CECOPESCA, as the leading entity of the project. This initiative aims to smooth the transfer of information between research organizations and companies specialized in different areas, thus promoting business cooperation between the different countries participating in the proposal and with it the consolidation of this new market.

Lastly, the European project "FARFISH - Providing knowledge, tools and methods to support responsible, sustainable and profitable EU fisheries outside European waters" was presented. The main objective of this Horizon 2020 project is to improve the knowledge and management of fisheries in non-European waters, and at the same time contribute to the long-term sustainability and profitability of European fishermen.
