“Since 2010 IDB has engaged in a collaborative cheese development programme with Teagasc Food Research Centre and MTL. Through Teagasc and MTL, IDB has access to an R&D; intellectual knowledge base and state of the art equipment including pilot plant facilities. The flexibility and capability of MTL pilot plant has enabled us to fast track product development through trialling a large number of variants at pilot scale level. Successful products will be produced commercially by IDB members and marketed internationally by the IDB”.
“Food colorants Carmine, Carotene and Annato are successfully produced in Moorepark Technology Ltd by Cybercolors. In this product category the challenge was to set up the basic extraction processes and produce the final powder in the desired functional form”.
“We have had good success in large scale pilot plant trials carried out at Moorepark in Ireland”.
“The relationship with Teagasc Moorepark, and specifically the pilot plant at Moorepark Technology Limited (MTL), is central to the new product development process. The scale of operation in MTL is ideally suited to the manufacture of prototype batches of new products”.
