Purpose and goal

The aim has been to develop one of the world´s most cultivated and sustainable crops into a nutritious and exciting product, with the potential to penetrate the European market. The purpose was to identify locally available raw materials that can be combined with mandioka (cassava) for taste and nutritionally optimized products.

Expected results and effects

In the project, a new line of gluten and lactose-free high-nutritive foods has been developed. The products are based on imported raw materials produced ecologically and small-scale, in combination with locally available raw materials. The result is several varieties of a colorful, nutritious and tasty product; Lupioka that can be enjoyed by everyone.

Planned approach and implementation

The collaboration with KrinovaMAT and Innovation Skåne, was important for creating relevant contacts with potential customers and partners, as well as relevant inputs in market analysis and business development planning. Collaboration with Lund University through OpenLab has been rewarding, but also led to major delays. Despite many challenges, the project has resulted in the development of several products, which according to the customer and competitive analysis conducted show great potential.
