Food technology companies Campden & Chorley Food Research Association (CCFRA) and Brewing Research International have merged to form Campden BRI.

The company specialises in offering research, hygiene, and training services to member companies, and the merger would allow it to share its scientific expertise and broaden the training it could offer, according to director of corporate services Jeremy Davies.

BRI’s location near Gatwick would also benefit the merged company’s training for international members, he said.
