Innovation project to build a hygienic filler a great success

Hygienic filler – PROJ-01183

The objective of this R&D collaboration project was to develop, build and test a prototype of an aseptic robot filler based on the knowledge to be developed in the field of decontamination mechanisms and the relationships between raw material, process, filling step and final quality.

Two innovative and ambitious SMEs work together for this:

The economic value of the development is high, both for the user (in the market and for the sector) and for the partners. Increased hygiene during filling provides extra shelf life and therefore less product loss in the chain with an estimated benefit of € 250-500 M per year.

This project was made possible in part by a contribution from the province of Noord-Brabant.
