Food for Health Ireland receives second term funding

Food for Health Ireland, the government-sponsored food technology centre, has received second round of funding of €21 million—€16m from the state and €5m from the companies involved in the project.

Richard Bruton, the minister responsible for the programme, described the support as an investment in “milk mining”, given its emphasis on the search for bioactive substances in milk. He was speaking at the launch of the centre’s second term on 27 November.

Food for Health Ireland is one of 15 technology centres where industry plays a major role in determining the research agenda. The companies involved are some of Ireland’s leading food ingredient and dairy companies including Carbery, Dairygold, Glanbia, the Kerry Group, and the Irish Dairy Board. The centre employs 73 people.
