The Dairy Crest Innovation Centre at the Harper Adams University campus, Newport, Shropshire has been opened. The new facility was opened by The Princess Royal, the Chancellor of Harper Adams University. Her Royal Highness was accompanied throughout her visit by Stephen Alexander (Chairman, Dairy Crest), Mark Allen (Chief Executive, Dairy Crest) and Dr David Llewellyn (Vice-Chancellor, Harper Adams University).

Her Royal Highness was particularly interested to hear about the knowledge sharing partnership between Dairy Crest and Harper Adams University – a unique development between a major food business and a University. The partnership means a number of students will spend time working within Dairy Crest on 12 month placements and one-off projects. It also gives Dairy Crest access to research, staff and students at the University.

The state of the art facilities at the Innovation Centre include development kitchens, a pilot plant and the laboratories.

Mark Allen, Chief Executive of Dairy Crest, says: “Building brands and adding value is fundamental to everything we do at Dairy Crest. Innovation is at the heart of our strategy. I am particularly excited that the Dairy Crest Innovation Centre, which is home to our research and development and technical teams, is built on the campus of Harper Adams University. The university is well known and respected for its leading role in food, farming and science education.”
