Food Science

Food science involves research into the nature of foods in order to develop methods to improve food for the consuming public. This type of research and development is conducted by companies in order to adhere to everchanging societal lifestyle choices and medical needs, eg. vegan and gluten free diets. Despite this, estimates indicate that the majority of eligible food science companies forgo their right to R&D tax relief with those claiming often failing to maximise their financial benefit.
