by Andrew Wilkinson and Malachi Stone, Milling and Grain

Excellence through knowledge and investigation

Just on the outskirts of the Cotswold town of Chipping Campden, set amongst the Cotswold stone buildings, you will find the head offices of Campden BRI.

Campden BRI is a dynamic, cutting-edge research organisation, which counts some of the biggest global players in the food and drink industry as its members. It has been supporting the food and drink industry for over 90 years.

Boasting a total of 3,000 square metres of labs and 3,500 square metres of pilot plant, the team of 350 staff at Campden BRI provides the food and drink industry with practical scientific, technical and advisory services needed to ensure product safety and quality, as well studying the efficiency of both processes and production.

They also train thousands of food and drink specialists each year. The work carried out by Campden BRI covers four main areas: analysis and testing, knowledge management, research and innovation and operational support.

Analysis and testing Relevant, reliable and timely analytical results are essential for the food and drink industry.

The analysis of food – from the raw materials and ingredients and through processing to the final end product – is an important part of managing food safety, quality and authenticity. Results are the basis for many big decisions.

Campden BRI offer a wide range of analyses, including assessing ingredients’ suitability for purpose, and microbiological and contaminant testing, to determining the composition and authenticity of food, foreign body analysis, packaging and sensory analysis.

During our tour we were shown Campden BRI’s state of the art sensory facilities. Many retailers and manufacturers call on Campden BRI’s help when developing new products to carry out discrimination tests - such as triangle tests - to investigate potential taint problems or the effects on the product of changes in ingredients or process.
