About

Kaunas University of Technology and the Institute of Gardening and Horticulture at the Lithuanian Research Centre for Agriculture and Forestry established the modern Food Science and Technology Competence Centre (FSTCC) in 2010. The FSTCC is the first such centre in the Baltic States and is equipped with unique pilot equipment for the food industry. The combination of production and the most modern analytical equipment enables the modelling and optimisation of industrial processes in food production and storage as well as the identification and assessment of critical points in processes.

We are open to cooperation and invite all companies and organisations to cooperate in the development and improvement of technologies and the creation of new products:

  • you will save your time and expenses
  • you will control the process at every stage of its development
  • you will have the chance to use the knowledge collected at the centre
  • you will increase your visibility and competitiveness

Our vision is reflected in the centre’s name.

Buisiness service

We are here to assist industrial companies in the development of food production technologies using national intellectual resources and to look for rational solutions to production issues.

  • We provide professional advice on technical issues relating to food production and processing.
  • We constantly analyse EU directives and give advice.
  • We help analyse concepts and develop them.
  • We simulate real food production conditions with low raw materials.
  • We produce and demonstrate prototypes.
  • We offer a wide range of training in the field of food chemistry, production and quality.

Laboratories

Milk Laboratory

  • We produce cheese with automated vacuum tanning and cheese makers with full moisture and temperature control during ripening.
  • We improve your technology.
  • We concentrate on dairy products.
  • We collect and test raw materials for produced dairy products.
  • We process milk and liquid milk products thermally and mechanically.
  • We create new dairy products.

Meat and fish Laboratory

  • Reddening, boiling, baking, drying, maturing hot/cold smoked products in a heat-treatment chamber.
  • We shred, sort and rip raw meat and fish veins and arteries.
  • We simulate, loosen the texture of the products, change and check the intensity of salting.
  • We create recipient compositions and emulsions.
  • We form and pack products.

Bread and fermentation Laboratory

  • We create new confectionery and bakery manufacturing technologies.
  • We use modern methods to check the quality of products and raw materials.
  • We create and analyse processes for the production of kvass, cider, beer and strong drinks.
  • We create natural food additives.
  • We test new raw materials.

General Research Laboratory

  • The formation of nutritional products/dishes texture, nutritional value.
  • The application of sustainable technologies (heat treatment at low temperatures, semi-finished product vacuum).
  • The application of technological operations (packaging, intensive chilling, marinating).
  • The development of new food products/dishes, the optimisation of technological parameters and recipes, the description of production and documentation.
  • The creation of technology cards.
