Air Products, Grimsby Institute and Chinese Universities lead food freezing research


Air Products and the Grimsby Institute have revealed a collaborative international research program to support the creation of best practice guidelines for food freezing and chilling.

The research programme will provide a strategic review of the principles and practices of chilling and freezing food to establish best practice guidelines.

The Grimsby Institute’s Professor Dillon, who is responsible for helping to bring FRPERC to Grimsby, commented, “It is great to see the applied research unit get this agreement so soon after setting up base in Grimsby. I know this project will be the first of many to help build our reputation nationally and internationally as a centre of excellence in the freezing and chilling of seafood.”

Led from the Grimsby Institute’s Food Refrigeration Process Engineering Research Centre (FRPERC), the research will be carried out by research fellows, Stephen James, Christian James and Graham Purnell, backed by 100 years of know how and expertise now located in Grimsby. Their activity will be supported by a group of research students from Universities in Southern China, who will be completing MSc degrees in productivity and innovation.
