Pilot Plant for New Food Product Development Opens in Leskovac
April 22, 2015

LESKOVAC – On April 22, 2015, the USAID Mission Director Azza El-Abd and Mayor of Leskovac Goran Cvetanovic opened a pilot plant for new food product development at the Food Technology Park (FTP) in Leskovac. USAID provided $90,000 for the establishment of pilot plant, to enable food processors to develop new and improved products in a cost-efficient way.

“The innovations coming out of this research and development facility will increase the food processing sector's competitiveness and boost sales,” said Azza El Abd, the USAID/Serbia Mission Director.   

For the development of a new product, food processors previously needed to use large samples to test products, which substantially increased the cost of product development. The new facility will support all stages of product development, from idea generation, through concept development, to the production of trial samples in small batches. Also, the plant’s capacity will expand to include other sectors of food processing, apart from confectionary and bakery product lines.
