Chimigraf achieves grant Phase 2 for FreshInk project

FreshInk is a revolutionary smart packaging solution for fresh foods such as chicken breast.
Application sectors: Food & Beverages
Research area:

Packaging, Transport and Logistics Research Center, ITENE, has collaborated with Chimigraf to have positive results for Phase II of the SME Instrument of the European Commission in FreshInk project.

FreshInk is a revolutionary smart packaging solution for fresh foods such as chicken breast. To achive this goal, patented solvent-based flexographic ink is used which generates a reagent that continually provide a visual indication of the level of product freshness.

This innovative solution by Chimigraf introduces important advantages to traditional packaging. It provides for increased security when monitoring the freshness of the packaged product, thanks to the reactive compound that changes colour as the product loses freshness. In short, this is a very visual indicator that can be understood and interpreted by both professionals and consumers.

SME Instrument

SME Instrument consists of three phases, two of which have now been successfully passed.

Last year, Chimigraf had success in Phase I of the SME Instrument. It was about a feasibility analysis of the innovation project on both a technological and an economic level, studying its impact as something new in the sector or in the market to which it is aimed.

Phase II consists of the development of the innovation project.

Finally, Phase III will consist of marketing the new product with the valued support of the European Union by means of action plans, training, coaching or networking, having a CE quality certificate. 

As the enterprise explained, “thanks to this development support for FreshInk as well as our own solid know-how, Chimigraf is continuing to make innovations in smart packaging by the introduction of a technology that will mark a before and after in the conservation of the food we all eat”.
