QMU's Scottish Centre for Food Development and Innovation (SCFDI) was established in response to demand from Scotland's food and drink industry for combined R&D and innovation space to support the rapidly expanding sector.

  • New and innovative industry focused product development and analysis
  • Industry access to our technical analysis suite with an ever expanding range of lab scale assessment techniques.
  • Pilot scale product development room.
    Reformulation of existing products – for example healthier alternatives to fat, salt and sugar
  • Nutritional analysis, shelf life testing, consumer focus groups and taste panels
