Raw material production systems
How crops are grown is vital to the whole food chain - it is important to have the right variety for the end product, and to grow it in the right way. This includes whether and when to apply pesticides.
Campden BRI agriculturalists can advise on agronomic inputs - manure, treated waste, fertiliser and irrigation water - as well as on agronomic performance and suitability for fresh and processing markets of different fruit, vegetable and cereal varieties. We have a wealth of experience in conducting variety trials for a whole range of products, and can advise on or help you set up trials for your particular raw material.
Help is also on hand when issues such as poor product quality arises due, for example, to unfavourable environmental conditions or mishandling during post-harvest operations, and also to combat raw material food safety problems.
