Cereal-based, Bakery and Snack Products Suite

Prepared Consumer Food Centre

Consumer demands are changing at a significant rate, and becoming more diverse. This is particularly evident in the bakery and snacks sector. Therefore, the role of research and innovation in this area has never been more important. Strong competition in this sector, coupled with the threat of Brexit, is compelling companies not only to innovate and diversify, but also to look further afield for new and emerging markets, to ensure that they remain relevant and competitive. To assist with this, the PCFC at Ashtown offers a suite of equipment for research, development and innovation for a broad range of cereal-based products, bakery goods and snacks.
