Microencapsulation and Technical Management for the Agri-Food Sector
CD R&D Consultancy Services Ltd
Operating primarily in the agri-food sector across food, feed, functional ingredients, water, beer and the wider beverage industry. CD R&D was set up in 2012 by Craig Duckham, to provide innovative solutions in microencapsulation and analytical testing services and products, ensuring effective service provision for clients.
We have extensive experience in technology scouting and horizon scanning, concept development, project initiation and execution, proof-of-concept and scale-up trials. We provide either desk studies and reports or project implementation and management. We negotiate with contractors, agreeing timescales, securing competitive pricing and delivering products and services to specified quality standards. We provide independent expertise across diverse technologies to identify the best approach to meet the challenges of modern NPD projects. For example in terms of microencapsulation this may include: spray drying, spray-chilling, extrusion, fluid bed coating or coacervation. CD R&D helps clients negotiate the inevitable hurdles that arise by providing innovation, insight and project management support, in areas that embrace research in food flavour, taints and off flavours and in the modified release of functional ingredients. We can support your laboratory development and the building of technical teams.
