The Montpellier startup Panjee gives everyone access to information about food products. The company is creating a “food passport” database for the agri-food community to share with distributors and consumers.
Creation of a digital catalog for Montpellier MINIn late 2018, Panjee created “nosproduitsdequalité.fr” (translation: our quality products), a new information site for INAO – the French National Institute for Origin and Quality – with over 600 food products, including wine and spirits having received official origin and quality labels such as AOP, IGP, IG, AOC, and Red Label. The startup is preparing a digital catalog for the Montpellier Market of National Interest (MIN), to be published this summer. Panjee now has plans to expand its database to include other food products, particularly seafood products, for the French Fishing Sector and the Interprofessional Aquaculture Committee.
Incubated by Montpellier BIC since 2016, the two partners and six employees have their offices at the Cap Omega facility.
The young company is also incubated by Agro Valo Méditerranée (INRA) and benefits from support by the Agri Sud-Ouest Innovation regional competitiveness cluster.
“We benefit from the help of a project manager, training courses, and a very active startup network,” adds Jeoffrey Queruel, who also feels that “the Montpellier environment, with its digital and agri-food activities, is favorable for Panjee’s growth.”
