SIOSI is a young technology based company that has focused its initial efforts on the development of the technology to freeze-dry hass avocado paste.
The laboratory project started as a thesis of four students of the Instituto Tecnológico de Morelia, a public university in Mexico. Once the technology was developed in a laboratory scale (producing less than 16 grams of powder per day), a group of angel investors decided to invest in the venture. In 2006 the company was created under the name of SIOSI, which stands for YES or YES! (we believe that when developing novel technologies, it is important to have a positive attitude and to avoid taking NO for an answer).
The following year, the National Council of Science and Technology in Mexico (CONACYT) approved us a grant for the development of a pilot plant, which is the only facility in the world that can produce freeze dried avocado pulp powder in a large scale. The technology developed in the process of freeze drying is patented in the US and in Mexico, and we have proprietary equipment technology that makes the whole process come true.
SIOSI continues developing technology for avocado freeze drying (mainly equipment to increase the process' productivity) and is starting to develop new process technologies for other fruits.
We all at SIOSI hope you enjoy and like what we do! We surely do!!!
