Food manufacturing and processing

Food manufacturing and processing

Food manufacturing and processing can be done using many different methods.

We have extensive pilot plant facilities that can be harnessed to investigate the preservation processes of heating, chilling and freezing (thermal processing), and drying, as well as the 'nuts and bolts' of product development - ingredient preparation, product formulation and packaging development.

We also have expertise in all aspects of food manufacturing including brewing and malting, bakery technology, meat and poultry, and pet food product development.

We have been at the forefront of food and drink research for a century, much of the pioneering work on the development of foods suitable for microwave processing and reheating was done here.

We are particularly involved in evaluating other novel methods of food manufacturing - such as high-pressure processing. And now offer a high pressure process (HPP) challenge test.
