El entorno comercial de la pectina en la Industria Alimentaria Antioqueña
Mejía Restrepo, Alberto | 2011
Waste from coffee production process (mucilage and pulp) can be used to extract pectin; an industrial raw material, which is not produced in Colombia and has to be all imported. This project was done in order to help Ambiental Mente to characterize the pectin’s commercial environment in the food industry of Antioquia. From secondary source material, field work in supermarkets and interviews to companies directly related to the pectin and its distribution channel, a positive disposition to buy and sell national pectin was identified, with the special requirement of this pectin being of high quality and approved by each of the R+D company areas.
