Innovation at its core
Innovation is at the heart of what Provisur does. The company has two Innovation Centers – one in Chicago, Illinois, and another in Paris, France, where customers, in collaboration with Provisur engineers, product specialists and food scientists, can experiment with new formulations, brainstorm, and explore the processing options to develop tailored applications and solutions.
Collaboration between Provisur experts and customers is a mainstay of the innovation process. The company develops patented technology to meet the ever-changing needs for the food processing industry, often originating from creating tailored solutions that solve customer challenges.
For the second time innovations from Provisur made it all the way to the top ten of Crain´s List of Chicago’s Most Innovative Companies for 2022. The list is compiled by Ocean Tomo, a consultancy specialized in intellectual property (IP) and comprises twenty high-performing innovators. Rankings are based on the quality of patents awarded to each company: “Behind each one are stories of passion, persistence and inspiration harnessed to create something new,” says Crain’s. The list recognized Provisur for its 16 patents in 2022.
