ESTEBAN ESPUÑA is one of 15 companies in the meat sector involved in the Q-PORK project, a set of initiatives to improve the quality of pork and its derivatives through various aspects of the meat industry.

Co-financed by the European Union, Q-PORK was created based on the action plan of community RIS3CAT "INNOÀPAT", a group of companies and research centres led by the IRTA with the aim of making the food chain as healthy as possible.

Q-PORK comprises 4 thematic working groups acting in a joint and coordinated manner to achieve optimal quality of pork products and their derivatives.

From its R&D department, Espuña is basically involved in one of these groups. Namely WP1, the focus of which is new technological solutions for the control and improvement of pork quality.
