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
offsite process validation and other consultancy
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.
