Spanish Agrimax partner Indulleida features in the Europe Direct Information campaign “Europe invests in you”. The campaign highlights how EU-funded projects such as Agrimax promotes growth, innovation and employment in areas such as Lleida in Spain.

Indulleida was founded in 1980 in Spain, and today is one of the leading fruit processing companies with a 220.000m2 production facility, producing purees, concentrates and other by-products/derivatives. Its shareholders are 170 fruit cooperatives and packing houses representing more than 18.000 farmers throughout Spain and southern France.

Agrimax is an EU-funded project that is developing and demonstrating the production of multiple, high-value products from crop and food-processing waste. The project is also developing economically competitive routes to the commercialisation of these products, using flexible, and possibly cooperatively run, processing facilities. Agrimax will maximise the EU’s sustainability, while providing new biobased compounds for the chemicals, food-packaging and farming sectors.

The Agrimax consortium combines the expertise of 29 partners from 10 European countries: 18 of which are from industry.

The project has received funding from the Bio Based Industries Joint Undertaking under the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No. 720719.
