Balsgård testbed – testing of new beverages and food products


    From idea to product and beyond
    Among a unique growth of fruit trees and berry bushes in the outskirts of Kristianstad you will find the Balsgård testbed, where start-ups and established companies can develop new beverages and food products with the support of extensive industry knowledge, experience and creativity.

    The testbed is run as part of a collaboration between Krinova and Balsgård Foodtech. As a result, you will receive support in all aspects involved in turning your product idea into reality. From business and concept development together with Krinova’s Innovation Arena and business designers, to product development, process development and production.

    The right conditions for success
    Working together, we do what it takes to ensure that your product has the right conditions for success. We can help you answer questions like:

    • Is my product idea and concept commercially sustainable?
    • What flavours go together, and how is this evaluated?
    • How do I get the product to look the way I want?
    • How do I ensure that the product is microbiologically stable?
    • What is required to take my product to market?

    Can your product be further developed at Balsgård?

    If your company is in the early stages, a start-up, or is a small to medium-sized company that needs support, you are welcome to join us. We want to achieve the best possible results with your resources, and can also help you navigate and find funding options for your business idea.

    You do not need a fully developed idea or plan to contact us. At Balsgård, you – the entrepreneur – and Krinova’s business designers can do this together!
