In a market where consumers are increasingly demanding and mindful of their diet, Québec NUTRI brings together stakeholders from the food processing sector who care about the development and commercialization of added value products contributing to a healthier food offering. This cluster aims to create a pool of contact networks, advanced technologies and applied knowledge designed to help develop new health foods and support growth in local businesses.
Through different projects and activities, Québec NUTRI educates and supports all businesses in the food processing sector that wish to take a “healthy turn” in order to maintain or increase their competitiveness and develop new markets.
To better support businesses, Québec NUTRI acts on four main axes to help organizations and their teams reach ambitious individual and collective goals.
Innovative solutions are a building block of distinction and progress.
Québec NUTRI supports the creation of new health foods as well as the improvement of existing foods’ nutritional value by using wholesome ingredients and innovative technological solutions. This cluster focuses on implementing shared development and research projects, identified by the businesses, that could be realized in collaboration with experts and specialized research centres. Training and awareness activities also support the implementation of innovation projects and contribute to the vitality and mobilization of the members of the cluster.
Offering relevant and efficient support to ensure success at home and abroad.
Québec NUTRI promotes business development, both by organizing trade missions, buyer receptions, training events and coaching programs and by identifying commercial, technology and financial partners.
Having the right resources at the right time is essential for a strong industry.
