Are you looking for a more efficient way to conduct research and development (R&D)? In order to be an efficient bio and food research and product development company, we are following the rapid product development approach. Our R&D process is described in the next steps which are customized to producers’ needs:
Product development at lab scale
Product development at pilot scale
Technology transfer and implementation in production
In addition, the Department of Metagenomics has a crucial part in product development, supporting with microbiome analysis and profiling services.
TFTAK has deep food science expertise from ingredient processing to food manufacturing and formulation to sensory & consumer studies. They are making important contributions to the field of alternative proteins and I am grateful for their willingness to share their knowledge and experience with GFI. The team in TFTAK is collaborative, friendly, knowledgeable, and responsive: all qualities that make them excellent research partners and collaborators!
TFTAK has been our partner from the very beginning helping us mostly in new product development and shelf-life studies. Freeze drying technology is quite new and has been studied very low, so with the help of TFTAK we are trying to increase the knowledge about this technology. Smooth and fast cooperation as always. The best thing is that they can describe things in everyday language as well :)
The collaboration with TFTAK has been very successful. They helped us in formulating the task and developed a full solution which has allowed us to considerably save both money and time. In addition, they helped us find extra possibilites for project funding. Highly recommended!
Center of Food and Fermentation Technologies has been our longstanding partner. The company is professional and innovative - they can always fulfil the task at hand according to the specifications, often exceeding our expectations. As an additional plus I would highlight their 'hands on' approach in implementation of new technologies !
I was just blown away how this place works. The enthusiasm there! They try to solve all the problems, no matter what it is or how bad the odds are. They seemed to be ready to fight that and I think that' s impressive. They would survive in any boundary conditions. When you go there and look them in the eye and see how they really fight for their survival - I really was impressed.
