Food SA along with partners SARDI and PIRSA are providing the valuable resource of food technologists to all SA food companies and specifically Food SA members who want to innovate, develop and strategically grow.
SERVICE AND ADVICE
Food SA is a great source of information, particularly for companies trying to identify ways to improve their products, access new markets and expand their potential.
While some companies need advice on packaging and processing, others need scientific assistance on labelling, nutrition information and flavour balances.
Food technologists can assist with services or advice on:
- New product development
- Functional foods
- Recipe formulations
- Ingredient sourcing
- Sensory evaluation
- Food safety
- Shelf life
Located at the Waite Campus at Urrbrae the Food Technologists work from a new product development kitchen, analytical lab and dedicated sensory lab.
EXPERTS ON CALL
Dr Tom Madigan, Program Leader and Andrew Maronich, Senior Food Technologist from SARDI are two of the experts available to help food companies.
With broad experience in the food science sector, they can help ‘join the dots’ if you identify problems that need the expertise of a food technologist.
BENEFITS FOR MEMBERS
As a benefit of membership with Food SA, your company can receive free initial advice to work out options for potential solutions to technical problems in areas such as processing, quality improvements and new product development.
If a longer term project is needed to solve the technical challenge the team can provide a technical service as fee-for-service work or assist in directing you to a range of consultant food technologists or other technical experts.
