Thermal processing services

Thermal processing services

Campden BRI offers professional support to ensure your thermal processes consistently produce safe products. For over 100 years we’ve been at the forefront of food and drink thermal processing. Our team holds extensive experience in supporting processors within the UK and around the world regularly working with some of the world’s largest food and drinks companies so when you come to us, you know you are in safe hands. Our thermal processing team at Campden BRI can support you in three ways.

1. Thermal process validation

To ensure thermal processes are effective, repeatable and consistently produce safe products, our experienced technologists can use a range of methods to undertake third-party thermal process validation work at manufacturers’ sites. Using specialist equipment, we follow robust protocols to ensure our conclusions are accurate and outcomes are clear. You won’t find a better value service elsewhere.

2. Processing consultancy

As a thermal process authority, we have the expertise to support manufacturers with third-party process reviews – for example, FDA process filling for the US market and other consultancy services. We can complete much of this work remotely to confirm that existing processing is sufficient or explore process optimisation opportunities.

3. Thermal process training

Our thermal processing team runs a variety of scheduled thermal processing training courses which includes both generalised or sector specific, online or face-to-face sessions. We also offer tailored training courses that are designed specifically for your organisation, whether you are a manufacturer, retailer or accreditation body.

Please get in touch to request a validation quote or any other thermal processing related service. Don’t worry if you are not sure what the appropriate service is, our friendly team are here to help and can work with you to put together a proposal.

We guarantee a high quality service at competitive price.
