Melton's new Food Enterprise Centre is offering a free food science and technology advice service for food and drink manufacturing businesses within the Borough of Melton.

Initially you can receive up to two days’ support through direct discussion of your question or brief with the FEC local food technologist, Alice Jones.

The technical support and advice covers areas such as:

  • Product development
  • Research and innovation
  • Process development
  • Technical problem-solving
  • Food safety, quality management and compliance
  • Product evaluation and testing (analytical and sensory)
  • Raw material supply and sourcing
  • Scale-up (establishment / expansion / diversification)

You will also have the opportunity to be signposted and connected to further resources or local services available such as business advisors, facilities, colleges and universities, where relevant.

SMEs and start-ups are especially encouraged to get in touch and utilise this free service.

If you are looking for support in developing a product, expanding your current product range, or are looking for some ad-hoc technical support and advice, Alice is here to help.

Get in touch directly with Alice to start discussing your food technical and product development needs.

Email: alice@agrifood-innovations.com

Please note: the technologist service is available one day a week, and will take enquiries on a first come, first served basis.
