At Demetra, technological innovation is a continuous process.
To guarantee 100% safe, preservative-free food, with a high service value, we constantly rise to the challenge.
The fruits of our research and development in numerous process improvements, such as the DIVA System, and product improvements, such as new flexible pouches, formats and sizes. We never stop.
In 2018, after a few years of development in collaboration with a pool of industrial plant specialists, we created the innovative, Industry 4.0 certified cooking and packaging system, DIVA (Direct Injection-Vacuum Cooking-All-in-one).
A method which, by combining sous-vide cooking with direct steam injection, brings important advantages over traditional systems:
it allows you to cook at a low temperatures, in order to preserve all the natural flavours and aromas of the ingredients
it reduces the amount of oxygen in contact with the food, avoiding oxidation and, therefore, degradation of the colour and flavour of the food
it minimizes the loss of natural aromas of fresh ingredients, preserving them throughout the packaging process
it minimizes handling of the product , avoiding additional thermal and mechanical stresses
We were pioneers in packaging our products in extremely resistant pouches, made of food-safe aluminium and polypropylene polylaminate.
By choosing the pouch you can count on some advantages compared to traditional packaging:
Tons of vegetables and mushrooms processed
Certified gluten-free products, included in the Italian Coeliac Association (AIC) Handbook
Pouches packaged on average in 1 year
Pallet places available in our logistics unit
End customers served via distributors and directly
