BIOAG Head Office

The Biotechnologies and Agroindustry Division focuses on innovation in the agro-industrial system for the development and competitiveness of food production in terms of quality, safety and sustainability, encouraging chain approaches, through agro-industrial and/or territory clusters. Promotes the development of products (food and non-food) with high-added value and high technological value derived from biological resources.
Develops methods and technologies for innovation and traceability of the production, supply, processing and marketing chains of agricultural and food products in a perspective of enhancing consumer confidence in the foodchain.
