Based at Grwp Llandrillo Menai in North Wales, the Food Technology Centre plays a key role in transferring knowledge to the food and drink industry in Wales and internationally. The Food Technology Centre has dedicated resources which enable food businesses to access technical support, practical solutions, advice and guidance on areas which are key to business growth.
With specialist processing halls for red meat, fish, dairy and prepared foods, the centre is equipped with an extensive range of modern pilot and industrial scale equipment to undertake all aspects of new product development through to a successful product launch. These facilities allow the client to manufacture products on a pilot scale in order to secure sales from retailers and final consumers before investing heavily in equipment. The centre also benefits from a sensory analysis suite as well as a fully equipped laboratory to undertake all aspect of characterisation and compositional assessment of food and drink products.
The FTC works with a broad range of food and drink businesses from new start ups through to national companies wanting support with third party accreditation such as BRC & SALSA.
With the long term objective of developing food and drink businesses’ processing and manufacturing capacity, we aim to further develop Wales’s and the UK’s reputation for producing and manufacturing innovative food and drink that is of the highest quality.
