Campden BRI has signed a strategic partnership with WineGB to become the association’s new scientific and technical partner.

The food science firm will use its expertise to provide a ‘comprehensive selection’ of wine analytical and testing services and wine consultancy to WineGB’s members.  

Campden reports more than 4,000 member companies in 90 countries, leveraging its 250-plus technical experts in the UK and Europe to help make safer, tastier, sustainable and affordable food underpinned by investment in ‘meaningful research and science’.

Support for the industry

Commenting on the new partnership, WineGB chief executive Nicola Bates said: “We are delighted that Campden BRI has chosen to increase its support of the GB wine industry through a partnership with WineGB.

“As a longstanding trade associate member of WineGB and the leading provider of wine analytical services, Campden is very familiar with our industry and its requirements. We look forward to supporting their enhanced technical services offering as our sector continues to grow.”

Campden’s partnership with the association builds on its growing expertise in wine – last year saw the group work with the Australian Wine Research Institute to deliver services ‘from grape to glass’, including in-depth technical analytical capabilities and sensory expertise.

Growing wine reputation

BRI chief executive Peter Headridge added: “The growing reputation of English and Welsh wine and the expansion of the industry means that there is clearly a need for the very best scientific insight and advice to support this British success story.

“In addition to this partnership, we have plans in place to expand the support we can offer wine producers, as we believe the UK wine industry is underserved in this area. With our background of scientific research in the food and drink industry, we can bring a new level of capability to serve WineGB’s members and the wider industry.”

Meanwhile, ultra-processed food, staff retention, recyclability, legislative divergence and food high in fat, salt and sugar were the five key challenges that the food and drink industry need to tackle​, identified by Campden BRI.
