Food manufacturing and processing

Food manufacturing and processing

We have extensive pilot plant facilities that can be harnessed to investigate the preservation processes of heating, chilling and freezing, 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 and meat and poultry.

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 have a team specialising in all forms of thermal processing, can provide offsite process validation and other consultancy services .

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.
