The CIT UPC Technology Center has joined the Cluster FoodService of Catalonia. This action has strengthened the CIT UPC’s presence in clusters and its position as an excellent technological partner for companies, in this case, in the food industry.

CIT UPC will contribute its expert knowledge of the food sector, particularly in specific technologies relating to food production, nutrition, preservation, packaging, logistics, distribution, traceability, analysis and control of foods, and other cross-cutting areas such as the circular economy, photonics, digitalisation or gamification, among others.

The main aim of the Cluster Foodservice of Catalonia is to promote and strengthen competitiveness in food services and to foster and exploit synergies between members of the value chain to promote the development of transformative projects, for example, on innovation, training, internationalisation, new product development, improvement in packaging and studies, among other areas. In addition, the cluster will become a space for debate and reflection among companies to determine strategic challenges and trends in the sector and to identify common objectives, through networking activities.
