The Greek company is willing to colaborate with the mentioned companies through commercial agreement with technical assistance or under technical cooperation agreement or licence agreement.

Description

A Greek spin-off company aims to ensure nutritional wellness on an individualized basis. Its scientific team consists of distinguished researchers with many years of experience in the field of nutritional biochemistry and human metabolism. Spin-off’s scientists have published more than 180 papers in world-renowned scientific journals and have remarkable experience in biochemistry of nutrition. The main objective of the company is to bridge the enjoyment of nutrition with the optimization of health. That is to say, each person is provided with personalized instructions that enable him or her to nourish in a way that ensures the proper functioning of the body by choosing as much as possible the foods he or she wishes.Food companies, supermarket chains, as well as restaurants could benefit from the innovative service through a commercial, technical or license agreement The core service is the measurement of the antioxidants of a wide range of foods so that consumers know their value and their potential positive impact on their health. The team came up with the idea to develop a device that could measure the antioxidant capacity of foods like coffee, juices, beer and wine, milk and so on. These are beverages and foods that we all use in our daily lives, however, without being aware of their potential benefits on one’s wellness if their consumption is adjusted to obtain the ‘ideal’ amount. Often, checks on the antioxidant capacity of food are carried out by the respective industries, but the machinery used is expensive and requires specialized handling. As a result, the mere consumer or nutritionist who would be interested in getting this information on foods and drinks cannot get it. The developed device answers to this need, as it is much cheaper and quite easy to use. It includes a colorimeter and an application, the combination of which allows to evaluate the antioxidant capacity of a liquid using essentially a drop of it. This service is of great interest to large food companies and large supermarket chains, because it allows them to evaluate their suppliers and enables them to adjust product purchase and sale prices accordingly. Restaurants can also take advantage of mentioned services; by identifying antioxidants throughout the restaurant’s menu, a new informed menu could emerge, in which clients would find the amount of antioxidants contained in all dishes. This would enable them to choose what to eat combining potential health benefits with one’s needs and preferences. Additionally, to the innovative device the company could offer a holistic measurement approach of food ingredients with wide variety of in vitro methods, cell line experiments, and in vivo studies. This leads to the creation of a product certification file. The results are given in the form of a certificate. After being trialed the products tested will be more appreciated by the consumer as their beneficial effects will be proved against other products or in the absence of that product. The Greek company is looking for food companies, supermarket chains, as well as restaurants could benefit from the innovative service through a commercial, technical or license agreement.

Often, checks on the antioxidant capacity of food are carried out by the respective industries, but the machinery used is expensive and requires specialized handling. The developed device answers to this need, as it is much cheaper and quite easy to use.

Once the client has chosen their partner, we'll introduce them over email and keep in touch with both parties to see how it's going. Sometimes things progress quickly. Sometimes because of changing priorities for either party, things progress slowly, but you never know - your next big business break could start right here.
