Strategic Allies Ltd. posted this Technology CallSeeking Service providers of Inhalation toxicology safety assessmentsWe are working with a European product development company that seeks to understand the stability of the materials considered for use in their prototype devices. The client therefore requires contractors with expertise in safety evaluations of such materials (may include polymers, ceramics, organics, etc). The devices frequently contain heating elements, and so service providers are required to provide inhalation toxicology safety and risk assessment services for materials that could be used by the company, and in eventual products for human contact. No recommendation is required by the service provider.
Haier posted this Technology CallSeeking partners with technologies or methods to remove pesticides from fruit and vegetables during storage within a refrigerator.We seek partners with technologies or methods to remove pesticides from fruit and vegetables during storage within a refrigerator. Preference will be given to technologies or approaches that currently have working prototypes that can undergo feasibility, validation or proof of concept over a 3-6month period. Financial support for the proof of concept phase will be negotiated based on specific performance targets agreed between both parties. For selected collaborators Haier may provide access to samples, test equipment and testing facilities. Technologies will need to satisfy manufacturability, material cost and ease of use assessments to progress from the concept stage.
Organization from Germany posted this Technology CallSeeking Technology Partners for Computational Study of Crystallization ProcessUndesirable crystallization processes are problematic and often lead to plugging in food processing, medicine, sewer lines, petroleum industry and manufacturing (e.g. thermoforming). Currently, many techniques are established to avoid plugging of flow lines but they are all associated with different level of risks. We are keen to explore computational tools to study and understand crystallization processes in the presence of crystal growth inhibitors. Given that experimental techniques are both time consuming and costly, an effective approach is to employ prediction models that can be conducted with the use of computer software. This would satisfy the infinite number of conditions for which measurements are needed and to extrapolate beyond the conditions of available data. We are seeking technology partners with relevant computational tools and capability to study crystallization processes and to evaluate crystal growth inhibitors performance, compatibility, stability and specific interactions with the crystal itself.
FrieslandCampina posted this Technology CallSeeking Sweetness technology for sugar reductionNew/novel technologies to reduce sugar content (or removing added sugar completely) and optimize sweetness in dairy products, without losing taste or texture, while minimizing cost impact, preferably by implementing natural solutions.

Haier posted this Technology CallSeeking for bacteria detection method used in closed spaceNowadays, consumers are more and more concerned about food safety and health. Food even stored properly may still grow bacteria with time goes on. So now we are seeking for technologies or solutions that can detect the total microbial counts in a closed space that can be integrated with refrigerator. The module shall be small in size and have a relatively long lifetime, as the lifetime of a refrigerator is 8-10 years. Currently, we do not set specific requirement for the detection accuracy. It would be accepted as long as it could detect and tell the total bacteria counts. Haier prefers to work with partners that have existing technologies or approaches that can be applied to this specific application. Collaboration can involve technology licensing, product sourcing, proof of concept leading to joint development agreements and assistance with scale-up to manufacturing. Preference will be given to technologies or approaches that currently have working prototypes that can undergo feasibility, validation or proof of concept over a 3-6 month period. Financial support for the proof of concept phase will be negotiated based on specific performance targets agreed between both parties. For selected collaborators Haier may provide access to samples, test equipment and testing facilities. Technologies will need to satisfy manufacturability, material cost and ease of use assessments to progress from the concept stage.
Strategic Allies Ltd. posted this Technology CallSeeking innovations in "Sensation of Sweetness"Our client is a leading manufacturer of non-alcoholic beverages, searching for game-changing enabling technologies to increase the sensation of sweetness in its products, with minimum/zero added calories. The company’s drinks are often carbonated, and are packaged and delivered in a variety of ways. The company has been actively working on reducing the sugar content of its beverages for some years, both through the introduction of various sweeteners and recipe formulation, but is now looking for a solution that improves the perception of sweetness in a truly innovative way. The client is open-minded as to the type and origin of a solution to substantially reduce or totally eliminate sugar/sweetening agents.
PepsiCo posted this Technology CallSeeking flavors, colors, and preservatives from natural sourcesPepsiCo invites proposals for alternative, naturally sourced ingredients – including novel and emerging flavors, colors, preservatives or other additives – to replace current traditional ingredients in food and beverage applications. Please review detailed tech request below.
Haier posted this Technology CallSeeking for technologies to reduce frozen meat gravy lossFor current refrigerators, meat and frozen foods are stored under low temperatures (-18℃) for longer preservation. However, after certain period, due to temperature fluctuation (caused by the on-and-off actions of the compressor and defrost, etc.) and sweeping of cold air flow (in air cooled refrigerators), frozen meat may lose water. For example, water on meat surface is removed and food cell is pierced through by ice crystals. Once the meat is thawed, there will be a large amount blood and the meat will taste hard or bad. This will have negative impact on meat quality. To further improve frozen food quality, we are now seeking for a new solution that could be applied on refrigerator products.
PepsiCo posted this Technology CallSeeking novel technologies and processes for manufacturing starch-based snack foodsPepsiCo is seeking novel, differentiating technologies and processes in food and adjacent industries for use in the manufacture of unique and novel snack foods from starch. Viable manufacturing solutions that can be applied for non-starch ingredients including sugars, lipids, proteins and others are also of significant interest.
