Campden BRI looks to broaden services

http://www.dreamstime.com/stock-photos-supply-chain-management-concept-flow-supplier-to-custome-business-man-writing-customer-image32695913A new department at Campden BRI is, says the company, benefiting members and other clients by bringing together key expertise in the areas of primary production, raw materials and ingredients, and primary processing operations. Reflecting the closer integration within the supply chain, the Department of Primary Production and Processing is providing a consolidated focus for areas from cereals and animal feed to fresh produce, as well as post-harvest storage and handling.

It will, said Campden BRI, further strengthen the links between the areas of primary production and primary processes such as milling, as well as providing closer integration of services offered to companies supplying into primary production – such as plant breeders and suppliers of agrochemicals and equipment. Building on historic areas of focus at Campden BRI, the new department provides greater critical mass, thus providing a platform for a broader range of services to clients.

“The new department will offer integrated services to members and other clients across the agri-food chain,” said Director of Technology, Professor Sam Millar. “The focus of the new department will be on the sustainable production of safe and quality primary products, raw materials and ingredients derived from crops, and their impact on finished product legality, safety, quality and market placing attributes, including animal feed.”

“This change builds on what Campden BRI describes as historic strengths in cereal milling and fresh produce. It will integrate services offered to clients across the agri-food chain, including plant breeding, crop protection, agriculture and horticulture, produce marketing, feed manufacture and agriculturally-derived ingredient development. It will also enable focused development of primary processing capabilities around wet and dry milling and fractionation, with a focus on processes intended to add value to raw materials.”
