Why are Pilot Plants essential for the study of Food Technologies?

Pilot plants play a fundamental role in developing processes that provide essential information for later use in industrial applications. They enable feasibility studies and the precise design of small-scale processes for subsequent industrial use.

In the food industry, these plants are indispensable tools that provide detailed insights into processes such as oil production, dairy product treatment, and meat processing, among many others. This knowledge is crucial for critical aspects such as flavour, nutritional value, and the quality of end products.

Both in research and education, pilot plants enable the realization of results and the conduct of detailed studies on specific process phases and/or products. Additionally, in the food industry, they are fundamental for optimizing and improving the efficiency of product transformation, from the reception of raw materials to the packaging process.
