A new dawn for Food Processing Faraday

19 August 2009

The four-year collaboration between the Faraday and the Food Processing KTN will now make way for two new organisations designed to bring even greater benefit to the food industry

Business as usual is the message from the Food Processing Faraday prior to a restructuring later this year. The successful four year collaboration between the Faraday and the Food Processing KTN (Knowledge Transfer Network) will now make way for two new organisations designed to bring even greater benefit to the food industry.

The third quarter of 2009 will see the Food Processing KTN, the Bioscience for Business KTN, and the Genesis Faraday Partnership merged to form a new knowledge transfer organisation - Biosciences KTN.

The Faraday will continue to operate as a stand alone company delivering vital independent services to its many clients in the food and allied industries and Regional Development Agencies including the Appetizing Innovation and ChIEFS programmes.

Pete Moores, Head of Sales and Marketing for the Faraday explains "the separation of the KTN from the Faraday allows us to solely focus on our strengths in turning knowledge into solutions for businesses and our unique values of independence, impartiality and our industry focus set our offering apart from our competitors".

As many of its 1,620 food sector clients will testify, the Faraday offers a unique source of practical and novel business solutions, and is able to present fresh ideas and approaches from research-derived knowledge and provide access to an extensive science and technology network which will continue under the leadership of Managing Director, Bob Marsh.

As an independent and impartial company the Faraday is not beholden to any one academic or research institute, enabling it to find the best solution for clients. Their only agenda is to serve the food industry and the companies that work within it.

Stephen Parry of the Findus Group comments; "As a continuously expanding organisation, we recognise the advantages of supplementing our internal capabilities by looking outside our business for inspiration in ways to stay ahead. The Faraday provides access to valuable insight and has built up a wealth of experience in applying the fruits of academic research to create solutions for businesses. The team are a dedicated and able group who have demonstrated their ability in helping the food industry access profitable solutions from its science and technology network".
