BioMainca, by Mainca
Innovative and cost-effective, 100% natural sausage/burger/processed meat producing machine
100% naturally processed meat (sausages, burgers and pre-packaged meals) begin to deteriorate much faster than industrially produced equivalents, mainly because they do not contain chemical preservatives. Hence, either they lose quality faster than industrial competitors or chemical preservatives have to be added, making them lose their natural status. Industrial sausages contain preservatives/chemicals that are known to be unhealthy.
Our client, the renowned Spanish manufacturer of processed food equipment, Equipamientos Cárnicos S.L. Mainca, will analyze the viability of the production of an innovative machine for butchers and sausage producers with a notable improvement in its characteristics that will also maintain the organic certification of sausages.
BioMainca will guarantee maximum food safety of traditional and natural products without the need to add chemicals, extend the shelf life of sausages by 40%, preserving their quality and organoleptic properties, and increase the productivity of butchers by 45%, reducing production costs in: -15% of energy consumption, -68% of water consumption and -25% of food waste. In addition, the presence of chromium in meat due to the wear of knives and plates will be reduced by 50%, it will prevent allergic reactions and the formation of carcinogenic substances caused by preservatives and will be recognized by the EU TSG scheme (traditional specialty guaranteed) which increases the income of small meat processors and benefits the rural economy in general.
In order to obtain financing for their project, Mainca submitted their proposal to the last call of Phase 1 of the SME Instrument, held in September 2019, and, after obtaining a score of 13.69, they achieved the grant!
From Aristos, we want to congratulate Mainca for this success and we are very happy to have been able to collaborate with them in this wonderful project that will make an important contribution to the rural economy and to the quality of our food.
