NIRAS has announced that its UK-based food and beverage capital investment expert, Integrated Food Projects (IFP) will rebrand and operate as NIRAS – creating the UK’s largest food and beverage manufacturing consultancy. Integrated Food Projects, which was acquired by NIRAS in 2020, is located in Kegworth, East Midlands, and has achieved substantial growth over the last five years – delivering projects for the world’s biggest food and beverage brands.

IFP will now fully integrate with NIRAS’s current food and beverage business operating from four locations throughout England (Ascot, Kegworth, Greater Manchester and Leeds).

NIRAS will be the UK’s largest food and beverage manufacturing consultancy, with a 150+ strong team of consultants, engineers and project managers currently working for clients around the world with a focus on helping drive change in the value chain and optimising their clients’ competitive position.

As part of the rebrand, Matthew Carr will be promoted to Business Unit Director. The senior leadership team will also include Nick Hickman, given the responsibility of VP Projects, and Phil Mason will take on the role of VP Operations.

Matthew Carr, Business Unit Director at NIRAS, commented: “We are incredibly proud of what we have built at Integrated Food Projects. By rebranding to NIRAS and consolidating the experience of some of the best food and beverage consultants and engineers in the country under one leadership team, we will be able to provide a greater depth of expertise for our clients. Working with teams across NIRAS, this will allow us to provide a one-stop shop for market-leading food and beverage companies looking to expand and improve their manufacturing capabilities.”

Since the acquisition in 2020, IFP and NIRAS have integrated their complementary services.

The combined business will provide a full service offering to the UK market and global clients ranging from business consulting and strategic advice, through to design and project management and turn-key delivery. Following the merger, NIRAS will strengthen its shared resource pool and secure critical mass within business consulting, process, packaging, sustainability & utilities, civils and architectural design of food and beverage plants.

Thomas B. Olsen, Senior Vice President for Process Industry at NIRAS, added: “IFP has complemented our business extremely well these last years, and our clients have seen the benefits of combining our strengths. Therefore, it makes a lot of sense to change Integrated Food Projects’ brand to NIRAS now.

“At NIRAS, we have a very strong focus on the green transition and sustainability which are also key areas for IFP and its clients. Under a single company brand, we will continue to offer our clients complete solutions that combine IFP’s strategic business consultancy acumen with NIRAS’ innovative engineering solutions. We are one company, so when we deliver our projects we can draw on the best specialists from the United Kingdom, Ireland, The Netherlands and Denmark.”
