SAINT-HYACINTHE, QC, April 28, 2023 /CNW/ – Cintech agroalimentaire and Clextral have signed a strategic partnership to meet the strong demand from the food industry for access to innovative extrusion technologies.
Cintech’s partnership with Clextral, an international equipment manufacturer that specializes in state-of-the-art extrusion, drying and coating technologies, will make it a new global R&D center that will help create the foods for tomorrow.
Cintech and Clextral are working to make the Evolum 32 extruder available to agri-food companies across Quebec. The implementation of innovative projects with this equipment will be accelerated through augmented reality, which will give companies an immediate and powerful insight into Cintech’s expertise, assistance and all other relevant technical knowledge.
Cintech’s research and development teams will help companies to anticipate and respond to new market trends by implementing their innovative products, notably with Clextral’s twin-screw extruder among others. This equipment makes it possible to process various snacks in a wide variety of raw materials and shapes. Highly flexible and scalable, the extruders can be quickly and economically modified with interchangeable equipment to manufacture innovative products, such as expanded multigrain chips, co-extruded, bread snacks, crackers and textured vegetable proteins.
« Cintech is very excited about this partnership with a world-class equipment manufacturer. In addition to the extruder, which is needed by the agri-food industry, all of Clextral’s technologies can be made accessible to our industry. This agreement is the first of a series of partnerships with other equipment manufacturers that will be announced very soon. We are working towards building a state-of-the-art technology park that will be made available to agri-food companies to help foster innovation in our industry. » – Jean Lacroix, President and CEO of Cintech agroalimentaire.
