With more than 30 years of experience of image analysis in the cereal seed industry, Cgrain’s founder and CEO, Jaan Luup, has a deep knowledge of the image analysis of grain. Jaan Luup has developed the sorting instrument, Seed Scanner, and also owns the company Maxx Automation AB. Seed Scanner is an image analysis instrument that is used to quantify foreign seeds and is in use in several seed testing laboratories in Europe.
In 2009, Lantmännen contacted Jaan Luup and together they started a research project to develop the use of image analysis in the grain and milling industries. The project resulted in the company Cgrain AB that was founded in 2013.
Cgrain AB is owned by CEO Jaan Luup and Lantmännen. Lantmännen is an agricultural cooperative and Northern Europe’s leader in agriculture, machinery, bioenergy and food products. Owned by 27,000 Swedish farmers, Lantmännen has 10,000 employees, operations in over 20 countries and an annual turnover of SEK 37 billion ($4.1 billion).
Product development and manufacturing is located in Uppsala in the middle of Sweden. The first completed instrument, Cgrain Value ™, was launched at the end of 2014. Cgrain AB also develops client-specific applications if required. Please contact us for further details.
