Supporting food and beverage companies to grow and export.

FoodSouth’s South Island hub is focused on scale-up support for food and beverage companies. We work with you to achieve your growth, development, and export goals, giving you the advice, expertise, equipment, and connections you need to succeed domestically and internationally.

The purpose-built product development facility at Lincoln University near Christchurch consists of five independent, food safe processing spaces. We offer equipment to process a wide range of food and beverage products. Applications include extrusion, UHT, snack foods, sauces, powders, beverages, and plant-based products.

Engage our food processing spaces and equipment to:

  • Develop product prototypes for market validation
  • Carry out scale-up trial work, and small scale manufacture (typically
  • 20L to 200L batch sizes)
  • Conduct process development and improvement
  • Validate quality systems
  • Trial new equipment
