Ulrick & Short 'technically the best'

18 January 2013

Multimillion pound functional clean label ingredients company, Ulrick & Short, is accelerating into 2013 on the back of several high profile contract wins and a new pledge to benchmark itself as ‘technically the best’

Aware that claiming to be ‘technically the best’ is a bold statement, Ulrick & Short believes that its industry knowledge, ingredients and hands on personal services are unmatched by other starch manufacturers.

Ulrick & Short’s director, Adrian Short, commented: “We have differentiated ourselves by developing a very personal and unique hands on customer experience. This - coupled with our first class manufacturing standards, detailed industry knowledge, technical expertise and delivery of quality ingredients - means we offer an all-encompassing customer package, which is without exception ‘technically the best’.

“We're committed to guaranteeing only the best customer experience where delivering exceptional quality is key at every stage of the process – from raw material sourcing and manufacturing, through to technical support, research and development.”

The company has become internationally recognised for its product innovation and unparalleled expertise. Understanding the make-up of the raw materials it chooses to use has enabled it to develop bespoke ingredients with the correct functionality for almost any individual application.

Recent high profile contract wins on the back of this commitment to excellence feature several household name food companies including award-winning oatcake manufacturer, Edinburgh based Nairn’s Oatcakes. Ulrick & Short was able to demonstrate how a selected range of its clean label starches could deliver the exact textures and organoleptic properties desired by Nairn’s for its latest wheat-free product.

To guarantee absolute product integrity, Ulrick & Short has established intensive quality and safety standards to eliminate factors that may distort the overall characteristics of finished products. This ensures that during the development process the safety of the ingredient is never compromised.

These rigorous procedures and audits are independently assessed each year against the NSF-CMi Due Diligence Standard for which Ulrick & Short holds the gold standard. Quality standards are also vigorously analysed at its manufacturing partners’ sites. This unique active approach has aligned the company with international production facilities that have achieved the highest levels in BRC’s Global Standard for Food Safety and ISO 22000.

Working across a diverse range of food industry sectors including bakery, meat, dairy, soups and sauces, the company has a team of dedicated sector specialists and food technologists to help customers get the best out of their ingredients and add value to their products.

Derived from a wide range of non-GM crops including tapioca, wheat, rice, maize and corn, all of Ulrick & Short’s ingredients are naturally gluten free, making them ideal for food manufacturers wanting to tap into the very lucrative ‘free from’ market.
