Periodic Reporting for period 1 - ANTOFERINE (ANTOFERINE: An innovative eco-friendly process for chemical solvent free extraction of bioactive antifungal polyphenols from vineyard waste.)
Reporting period: 2018-05-01 to 2018-08-31
We have developed a new chemical-free biocontrol solution, Antoférine, which offers an innovative and natural solution to protect post-harvested fresh produce from fungal contamination and, this way, increases its shelf-life. The natural origin of our product aligns with consumers demands and ensures compliance with current food regulations.
The main objectives of the project are:
• Industrialisation of the production process and optimization of the formula.
• Obtaining the authorizations to commercialize.
• Consolidate and expand our commercial network.
The FS shows the novelty of our innovation and the great benefits that would bring to all the members of the food supply chain. Further, confirms its technical feasibility and commercial profitability even in the worst scenario.
COMMERCIAL PLAN, including: Market analysis; End-user’s segmentation; Main competitors; Commercial plan; Exploitation activities, including IPR strategy; SoA and FTO analysis. The post-harvest preservation market is a market with huge potential and no solutions comparable to ours.
FINANCIAL PLAN, including: Business model, Cost structure and price policy; Business projections for the first 5 years of Antoférine commercialization and 3 sales scenarios. Even in this worst-case scenario, we will be able to generate a big turnover, profit and new job positions.
